The Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) developed this session for new school nutrition staff – this curriculum is designed to provide a basic understanding of food safety. The lesson covers food safety and why it is important, methods for training school nutrition staff on food safety, how to prevent foodborne illness, and checklists to monitor food safety. The course will also focus on norovirus; its prevention and control strategies. It is estimated that more than half of all food-related outbreaks of illness are caused by norovirus. This training includes participant interaction and activities. 
 
 
This Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) session covers general concepts about basic forecasting for the procurement of foods in Child Nutrition Programs. Participants will also look at how the Buy American Provision affects procurement and contract monitoring activities. Key topic areas:
  • Stakeholders’ responsibilities and expectations
  • How menus determine goods and services that must be competitively procured
  • Inventory management, product movement, and cost management
  • Product categories, screening, and specifications
  • CN labeling
This training does not discuss federal regulations pertaining to procurement, nor does it replace current USDA policy memos or procedures determined by the State agency. This training is intended for school nutrition directors and anyone responsible for the procurement of foods in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) or School Breakfast Program (SBP).   
 
 
Training Culturally Diverse Groups is part of an ongoing effort by the Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) to establish and support a national network of trainers. Therefore, the target audience for this course is anyone who wishes to become a more effective trainer within child nutrition programs. The curriculum was designed to assist presenters in acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to effectively deliver training to culturally diverse groups, as well as encourage further professional development. ICN also designed this course to be interactive to engage the participant in the learning process.
