The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) provides annual training to all our providers as required by the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) A CACFP "Plus" Administrative Training is best utilized by center directors or center personnel handling the CACFP paperwork. The "Plus" training is an all day training and is required for all centers new to the CACFP for the 1st and 2nd year of program participation. The "Basic" training is for CACFP staff that has previously attended the "Plus" training and would like a half day program refresher to meet their annual training requirement. The "Cooks" training is for center kitchen staff that prepare meals for the CACFP. The "Cooks" training is also a half day training held in the afternoons on the same day as the "Basic".

The National Food Service Management Institute and Team Nutrition have developed an online calculator to be used with the USDA Food Buying Guide for Child Nutrition Programs (FBG). The interactive and simple to use calculator allows child nutrition professionals to build shopping lists of foods from the FBG and determine how much of each item to purchase to provide enough servings for the children in their program.
