The goal of the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) was to document the process (steps, time, and resources) for fully implementing Team Nutrition (TN) by communicating the four TN messages to students using the classroom and cafeteria as delivery channels, as well as other places in their environment such as the school, home, community and local media.

This comprehensive approach to nutrition education resulted from findings of the TN Pilot Implementation Project in which behavior change of students was more likely when messages were provided by multiple persons in a variety of places (communication channels).
