Food and Nutrition Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
This handbook describes the duties of the supervisor of a food service site in the Summer Food Program for Children. The responsibilities of the program sponsor are listed first; these include handling bills and paperwork, training supervisors, advising about meal types and what to do with leftovers, providing record-keeping forms and instructions, and assigning a monitor to assist the supervisor. Information that should be included in the supervisor's training is listed, and review questions to answer about the program's daily operations are suggested. Next, the supervisor's duties are delineated; these include ordering and counting the meals, assuring the meals meet nutritional requirements, and serving the meals within certain limitations. The special problems associated with the first day of the program's operation are discussed. Meal pattern requirements are presented in table form with footnotes, and advice on dealing with official visitors is provided. The handbook concludes with common questions and answers about the Summer Food Service Program and a list of do's and don'ts for supervisors. (EV)
