Meal Pattern, Menu Planning, and Meal Counting for New School Foodservice Managers

Vermont Child Nutrition Programs will be holding 3 trainings around the state in November for brand new school foodservice managers who were unable to attend this year’s Summer Institute.  This 3 hour training will cover some essential topics for new school foodservice managers.  Learn what meal components schools must offer to create reimbursable meals in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Programs (SBP), how to create a menu that meets the requirements, how to determine whether a meal is a reimbursable meal, and how to correctly count and claim student meals.  This training is free, and will count as 3 hours of credit towards the professional standards requirements for school meals programs.

Note: Experienced school foodservice mangers and new folks who were able to attend “Orientation to School Nutrition Management” in August may attend as well, but please know that this training will be kept to a very basic level and we will not be discussing more advanced topics.
