Handbook for Volunteers: Child Nutrition Programs.
Federal Extension Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
The Food and Nutrition Service administers interrelated child nutrition programs that provide federal aid in food, cash and technical guidance to food service programs for children from preschool age through high school. These are: National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Non-Food Assistance Program, Special Food Service Program, and Commodity Distribution Program. Most communities take part in these programs. However, there are many which need help in strengthening and improving their food services to children, especially the needy. Examples of what others have done, descriptions of the child nutrition programs, along with suggestions for community service projects are given in this handbook. It is third in a series of Food and Nutrition Service handbooks for volunteers, which also includes: Food Stamp Handbook for Volunteers (FNS-1), and Donated Foods Handbook for Volunteers (FNS-2).
