School Nutrition Training & Resources Designed to Meet Professional Development Needs!

The Nuts & Bolts of School Nutrition Programs on Demand is a well-established interactive online training series on fundamental topics in School Meal Programs. Training Topics include:

  • Module 1: Introduction to School Nutrition Programs
  • Module 2: USDA Foods 101 and Inventory Management
  • Module 3: The Administrative Review Process
  • Module 4: Resource Management
  • Module 5: Civil Rights for Child Nutrition Programs 
  • Module 6: Food Allergies

The modules are available 24/7 to conveniently allow school nutrition directors, managers, and staff to be trained on demand. Simply click the topic links to begin, no log-in required! A group training option is also available, and more details are available on the JSI web page.

Upon completion of both the module and post-test & evaluation, participants will receive a certificate of training indicating the hours and suggested learning codes (SLC) earned towards the USDA professional standards requirement.

The new Training Toolbox and Checklist is designed for school nutrition directors to easily plan and track staff professional development across the district. Read more about JSI’s new Training Toolbox and Checklist and be sure to take advantage of this resource designed to save you time!

Both are perfect for onboarding new staff, as well as to meet annual training requirements.
