This webinar discusses recent updates and provides guidance on the USDA Department of Defense (DoD) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. Topics covered include: program allocations, adding new schools to Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Order Receipt System (FFAVORS), receipting orders in FFAVORS, and managing school food authority (SFA) expectations. This webinar is intended for FNS regional office and state distributing agency staff who manage USDA Foods in Schools programs.
This memorandum addresses inventory limitations and requirements that USDA Foods processors must follow when manufacturing processed end products for use in child nutrition programs.
This instruction establishes the general standards and procedures that the state distributing agency, Indian Tribal Organization, or other consignee must follow in receiving shipments of USDA Foods, and conveys established responsibilities for other entities such as USDA Foods vendors and carriers.
In order to update and streamline policy guidance for the USDA Foods Processing Program, FNS is cancelling policy memoranda FD-009, FD-025, FD-130, FD-102, FD-030, FD-038, FD-048, FD-103, and FD-108. The guidance provided by these memoranda is outdated and has been superseded by the Final Rule: Revisions and Clarifications in Requirements for the Processing of Donated Foods, which was published on May 1, 2018.
This is Part One of a three-part webinar series that explains the USDA Foods Complaint Process. In this Dec. 11, 2015, webinar, Andre Orange and Tony Wilkins of the Food Distribution Division provide an overview of the USDA Foods complaint process.
