ICN's Forecasting the Procurement of Foods

The Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) will present a training on Forecasting the Procurement of Foods for SFAs in New York State. This training will cover general concepts about basic forecasting for the procurement of foods in Child Nutrition Programs.  This session is designed for Food Service Directors and Managers.

This training does not discuss federal regulations pertaining to the procurement system. Key topic areas include:

  • Stakeholders’ responsibilities and expectations
  • How menus determine goods and services that must be competitively procured
  • Inventory management, product movement, and cost management
  • Product categories, screening, and specifications
  • CN labeling
  • Accurate forecasting of products

Attendance for this training is limited, so three identical training sessions have been set up for New York State. Please only register for one date.

If you have any questions, please contact the Child Nutrition Training Team at cntraining@nysed.gov.
