SFSP training requirement is for all new Contracting Entities (CEs).
An authorized representative from your CE must attend the annual training and be able to disseminate the information to the rest of the organization before the program starts.
Either of the options listed below will satisfy the annual training requirement—you are allowed but not required to attend both.
SFSP Live Statewide Training: Statewide collaboration amongst the Education Service Specialists from across the 20 Regions in Texas to provide training to the Contracting Entities on the Summer Food Service Program.
SFAs in which fifty (50) percent or more of the students are eligible for free or reduced-price meals are required to provide a summer nutrition program and must report program costs. SFAs must submit their district’s summer operating costs at the end of summer to TX-UNPS (even if the cost is $0). This information is known as the “Summer Cost Report” and can be found in TX-UNPS by accessing the School Nutrition Programs module under the Applications screen and clicking on the Summer Nutrition Program Costs link. If the SFA partnered or collaborated with another SFA or entity and did not incur any costs, you must still report your district’s summer operating costs by entering the operating cost as .01 in TX-UNPS.
