Growing toward Excellence: Standards for School Nutrition Programs in North Dakota.
North Dakota School Food Service Association., Bismarck.; North Dakota State Dept. of Public Instruction, Bismarck.
The American School Food Service Association (ASFSA) has encouraged each state to adapt "Standards of Excellence" for school nutrition programs. The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI), in cooperation with the North Dakota School Food Service Association (NDSFSA), has developed this document, "Growing Toward Excellence." The document contains criteria to which programs must conform in order to be considered high-quality operations. Program excellence is achieved by serving quality food, implementing the USDA dietary guidelines, providing nutrition education, involving students and the community, practicing sound management, implementing personnel standards, and promoting programs. The guidelines are offered as a voluntary self-evaluation tool. Following the introduction and glossary, specific criteria and worksheets are offered for the following areas: administrative organization; financial management; personnel management; purchasing; meal planning, production, and service; nutrition education; sanitation and safety; and public relations.
