On Saturday March 4, 2017, the students in the Certificate in Excellence in School Nutrition Program gathered at Framingham State University to take their Food Service Systems in School Nutrition Programs course. Through projects and planned case studies, this course is designed to expose students to current trends and practices in school food service to better prepare them to run their own school nutrition programs. During this hands-on Saturday class, students created a week-long sample menu using NutriKids as part of one of their course projects. Other topics in the course include food safety, procurement, marketing, and customer service.
Students in the program work full time, as either directors or managers aspiring to be directors in school nutrition programs across MA and the USDA New England Region, while taking one course per semester in the program. Courses in the program utilize a blended learning environment with online conferencing classes scheduled on most Wednesdays during after school hours and one to three on-campus Saturday classes. Students love many aspects of this program- check out what some of the students in our current program have to say!
