Introduction to School Food Service. Michigan School Food Service Training Manual.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Cooperative Extension Service.; Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Dept. of Food Science and Human Nutrition.
This training manual introduces school food service, child nutrition program goals, and programs in Michigan. It also studies food service backgrounds, noting, for example, that "penny lunches" began in Philadelphia in 1894 and that Holland was the first country--in 1900--to legislate school lunches, as well as legal activities over the years. The legislative process underlying child nutrition programs is examined in lesson 3, while specific regulations for children's summer feeding, child care feeding, elderly nutrition, and other programs are covered in lesson 5. Lesson 6 addresses the roles and tasks of federal, state, intermediate, and local agencies; and lesson 7, those of local administrators and food service personnel. Trends and predictions are discussed in lesson 8, and progress tests with answer keys given in lessons 4 and 9. Handouts ranging from organization charts to community action suggestions, class activities, further references, sources for resource persons, and appendixes are included. (KS)
