DoD Fresh Program

USDA seeks to enter into a cooperative agreement with a Tribal organization, non-profit organization, or an American Indian Tribal College or any other accredited public or private academic institution of higher education with expertise working with Tribal communities to develop, design, and implement a fresh produce safety and handling training for program operators and staff of the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) (hereafter referred to as FDPIR Produce Training Program).

The training to be developed should model USDA’s Produce Safety University (PSU), a one-week experiential learning program that immerses child nutrition professionals in the fresh produce supply chain, arming graduates with skills to address real life scenarios and critically analyze and respond to food safety issues.
