PROGRAM ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Fiscal Year 2011: Center of Excellence for Food Safety in Child Nutrition Programs FNS awarded a grant to Kansas State University in April 2011 to establish a Center of Excellence to conduct research related to food safety in Child Nutrition Programs. There is no research entity that focuses on food safety research in schools, child care, and other FNS programs, yet there is a need for science-based research to provide the basis for food safety education programs. NFSMI Food Safety Cooperative Agreement In FY 2012 NFSMI will continue to conduct program research, develop training resources, and conduct evaluations in the area of food safety. FNS also is working with NFSMI to develop educational materials on inventory tracking and management for district and school level foodservice employees. Norovirus Outbreak Prevention FNS analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that norovirus is the leading cause of food borne illness outbreaks in schools. FNS and NFSMI have developed norovirus educational resources for school foodservice staff, including fact sheets, mini-posters, and a video. Food Defense Awareness FNS initiated a food defense project following four years of nationwide awareness training conducted by FNS. The awareness training encouraged State and local program operators to develop food defense plans and identified resource materials to assist in the development of the plans. The next step is to provide State and local program operators with a resource to test their plans. In FY 2011, a draft tabletop exercise (TTX) resource kit was piloted at three sites. Also in FY 2011, FNS worked with NFSMI to develop and train a cadre of facilitators who can work with school districts to conduct a TTX. Produce Safety FNS worked with the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) and the National Food Service Management Institute (NFSMI) to offer the Produce Safety University (PSU) to support the growing interest and participation in fresh produce programs in schools, such as the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, farm-to-school initiatives, and school gardens. PSU is a week-long course in produce safety for State agency staff and local school district directors for the NSLP. Training addresses food safety risks associated with fresh produce; good agricultural, handling, and manufacturing practices of fresh produce; hands-on training for fresh whole and fresh cut produce in various states of wholesomeness; fresh produce purchasing, receiving, storage, preparation and service. Fiscal Year 2012: Center of Excellence for Food Safety in Child Nutrition Programs The Center is starting projects such as an expansion of the school food cooling study and an evaluation of the guidance for developing a school food safety plan based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points principles. NFSMI Food Safety Cooperative Agreement In FY 2012 NFSMI will continue to conduct program research, develop training resources, and conduct evaluations in the area of food safety. FNS also is working with NFSMI to develop educational materials on inventory tracking and management for district and school level foodservice employees. Norovirus Outbreak Prevention FNS and NFSMI are also working on employee health and hygiene educational materials for schools and child care that will help minimize the likelihood of norovirus and other foodborne illness infections to be spread from ill food handlers. Food Defense Awareness In FY 2012, the tabletop exercise (TTX) resource kit is being field tested at three additional sites. The project will culminate in the release of a turnkey package that State agencies or school food authorities can use to conduct a school food defense TTX. The final field-tested resource kit is projected to be released in Fall 2012. Produce Safety FNS and NFSMI are currently developing train-the-trainer materials designed to help course attendees train others to extend the reach of the Produce Safety University. FNS also awarded a grant to the School Nutrition Foundation to develop four produce safety webinars, to be conducted in FY 2012 Food Allergies FNS and NFSMI are collaborating to develop a series of fact sheets on the eight major food allergens and related topics, such as roles and responsibilities of school foodservice staff and preventing cross- contamination. In FY 2011, a grant was awarded to the National Education Association Health
