Procuring Local Foods for Child Nutrition Programs

.The Procuring Local Foods for Child Nutrition Programs training provides a basic overview of federal procurement principles and covers a host of topics related to sourcing and purchasing local foods. This training highlights the variety of mechanisms schools can use to purchase local products while staying in accordance with federal procurement regulations, and the many areas within a solicitation where schools can express their desire for local products. Participants will leave with a solid understanding of how to target local foods when conducting both formal and informal procurements, use the Geographic Preference option, and use the USDA Foods and DoD Fresh Programs to enhance local purchasing.
