The fiscal year 2024 Team Nutrition Training Grant activities will allow state agencies to provide technical assistance to school nutrition professionals and help ensure they have the skills and knowledge to prepare and serve nutritious meals. The grant will also help school nutrition professionals pilot and implement coaching and mentoring programs and resources, and implement ways to capture and share the institutional, job specific knowledge of school nutrition directors, managers, and front-line staff.
