Description:

This is a recording of the United Fresh Webinar Series program that was presented live on October 30, 2019. United Fresh Produce Association worked to ensure passage of legislation that updated school nutrition standards for the more than 30 million children who participate in school meal programs each day. The updated standards require schools to significantly increase the amount and variety of fruits and vegetables that are available to students at breakfast and lunch. This webinar, hosted by the United Fresh Start Foundation, will assist produce companies that are navigating how best to work with K-12 school customers. The webinar will address school meal portion size requirements, how produce companies can benefit from understanding the USDA Food Buying Guide, and how schools are sourcing produce for their meal programs, using the USDA Department of Defense Fresh Program (“USDA DoD Fresh”). Companies that distribute produce to schools, as well as grower-shippers and fresh-cut processors that are currently, or interested in, selling to K-12 schools, are encouraged to participate. Speakers include: • Andrew Marshall, Director of Foodservice & Foundation Partnerships, United Fresh Produce Association • Mollie Van Lieu, Senior Director of Nutrition Policy, United Fresh Produce Association • Anneliese Tanner, Executive Director – Food Services, Austin Independent School District • Anne Garceau, Program Analyst, USDA, Food and Nutrition Service, Child Nutrition Programs • Kaushalya Heendeniya, Nutritionist, USDA, Food and Nutrition Service, Child Nutrition Programs • Blair Tucker-Gruchala, Program Analyst, USDA, Food and Nutrition Service, Food Distribution
