Providing nutritious, appropriate, USDA-reimbursable meals, which also meet the Head Start Performance Standards in Head Start, Early Head Start, American Indian/Alaska Native, Migrant/Seasonal Head Start and our Child Care Partnerships is complex. With federal oversight by not only one, but two distinct federal agencies, as well as state, local, tribal, and other regulations— with requirements often differing among themselves on the same topic—delivering quality nutrition services can be daunting. In addition, the roles of both the Nutrition Manager, Registered Dietitian, and Kitchen Manager may vary widely from program to program and are clearly impacted by the skill level, training, and partners who support an agency’s nutrition services. To top it off, right now there are inherent challenges in providing quality meals, due to food and labor shortages inherent with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Nutrition Drill Down: USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Requirements in Head Start & Early Head Start strives to provide content-area staff overseeing nutrition services (as well as their supervisors, colleagues, dietitians, early childhood education staff, and partners) with accurate, consistent, credible, and realistic information and tools to demystify USDA requirements and integrate them in an understandable way with our Head Start Performance Standards.

Participants in Nutrition Drill Down: USDA Requirements in Head Start & Early Head Start will refine their understanding of the relationship between Head Start Performance Standards nutrition-related requirements and USDA requirements, increase supervisory skills in this area, garner updated information, and gain insights into appropriate nutrition practices for early childhood programs. They will also learn about Civil Rights requirements in the Child Nutrition Programs, the recent Ounce Equivalents requirement, importance of the agency’s relationship with their respective USDA State Agency, and classroom mealtime practices to facilitate required meal counting for USDA meal reimbursement. An intentional, teamwork approach is stressed throughout the training, focusing on not only ensuring that requirements are met, but concurrently also aiming for quality!

Do you remember Kodak, Blockbuster, IBM? Companies that defined the market, even became the common cultural reference. Some of you may if your memory is that long. Whether you do or not, one thing these companies have in common is they failed to innovate and evolve. Cultivating Conversations is a discussion of the Head Start/Early Heat Start landscape over the past two years by exploring lessons learned, trends, and ideas on the horizon.

This facilitated round-table discussion format seeks to galvanize strategic thinking about your program’s future. Participants will utilize information from the community-wide strategic planning and needs assessment, strategic plan, and other local documents to shape discussion points for Cultivating Conversations, as well as conversations with local leadership. All parties vital to strategic and program planning are encouraged to participate, including Governing Body, Policy Council, Parent Committee, Management, Community Partners, and any others essential to your program’s future.

This is an all-hands-on deck approach to determine how your local program can avoid going the way of the Blockbuster business model. Plan on joining this critical discussion necessary for all Head Start/Early Head Start programs.
