Upcoming Virtual Events

February 29, 2024

March is here! We're pulling out all the stops with a jam-packed lineup designed to cater to every member of the CACFP community.

This month, we'll be celebrating CACFP Week by hearing stories about what the CACFP community is doing to raise awareness, as well as hear from USDA about the Proposed Rule to the Serious Deficiency Process. Learn more about Family Style Dining as part of our monthly free nutrition education series, and plan to join us for a meetup if you're an RD in the CACFP!

So, buckle up and mark your calendars, because you won't want to miss a single moment of the action-packed virtual events at NCA this March!

Serious Deficiency Process in the CACFP and SFSP: Proposed Rule

Join us for a webinar with USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) as they provide an overview of the proposed rule for the Serious Deficiency Process in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This proposed rule aims to improve the serious deficiency process in the CACFP, establishes the process for SFSP and extends the process to CACFP unaffiliated sponsored centers, enhancing consistency across states.
