Federal law requires all National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) sponsors to complete an annual training on administrative procedures. As previously announced in e-mails sent on April 2, 2013, and April 16, 2013, this year’s mandatory training is now available.
The updated training includes nine modules on key topics such as NSLP and SBP eligibility, verification, menu planning with the New Meal Pattern requirements, food safety, meal counting, civil rights, and school wellness policies, as well as quizzes and an evaluation on the topics.
