Resource Materials

FNS plans to release a new initiative that will allow states and school districts to access up-to-date, vendor-specific nutrition, allergen, and ingredient information for direct delivered USDA Foods. The GS1 GDSN project will inform the ordering decisions of FNS stakeholders and will help them manage meal planning to meet USDA nutrition standards and provide safe meals for students with food allergies and other special dietary needs. This webinar recording explains how this information will be made available and when USDA Foods vendors will be required to submit nutrition, allergen, and ingredient information.

This webinar is intended for states and school districts that serve direct delivered USDA Foods for child nutrition programs.
