Mandatory SFSP Training Coming in March


The California Department of Education Nutrition Services Division (NSD) Community Nutrition Programs Unit (CNPU) is pleased to announce that the 2021 Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) annual online Mandatory Training will be available in March 2021. Additional instructions and the location of the training will be detailed in a follow up email when the training is formally released.

Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations, sections 225.7(a) and 225.15(d)(1), requires all participating sponsors to annually attend state agency training and to train all administrative staff and site staff before they undertake their responsibilities. This training requirement must be met by all current, new, or returning SFSP sponsors by the SFSP Application deadline of May 15 or 30 days prior to the first day of service (in the case of new or inactive sponsors), whichever comes first.
