CCFP Roundtable Virtual Conference 2020–21

Are you aware of the upcoming annual Child Care Food Program (CCFP) Roundtable Conference being held virtually on November 16–18, 2020? The CCFP Roundtable is offering 20 sessions to provide you with the training and inspiration you need during these unprecedented COVID-19 times. It doesn't matter what part of the Child and Adult Food Program (CACFP) you work within, including At-risk afterschool programs, child care centers or family day care homes, they have thoughtfully curated content for you.


The session categories are:

  • Policy and Advocacy
  • The Pandemic and the CACFP
  • Racial and Social Justice
  • Business Management and Technology

Don’t miss the California Department of Education (CDE) Nutrition Service Division’s (NSD) session regarding updated meal record policies, procedures, and resources! Did you know that as of October 1, 2020, menu production records (MPR) are no longer required to be maintained by child and adult day care centers. Instead of maintaining MPRs, these agencies are only required to maintain menus with serving sizes. The NSD will provide an overview of this new policy and direct you to resources and information for compliance. This session will also help you prepare for an upcoming review in the 2020–21 program year.
