GREAT Schools, Colleges & Camps

GREAT Schools, Colleges and Camps is for foodservice directors, dining managers, chefs, registered dietitians and camp directors. This program teaches dining service personnel the essentials of preparing and serving gluten-free meals for students and staff with gluten-related disorders.  It addresses every step from sourcing ingredients to avoiding cross-contact. 

USDA-Mandated Continuing Education Credits for Foodservice Professionals

On February 27, 2015, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released new regulations on the professional standards needed to hire school foodservice personnel. Part of these new rules include mandatory continuing education credits for all foodservice staff. These regulations are part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.

The USDA has included GREAT Kitchens in the Professional Standards for School Nutrition Professionals database.  Learn more here.
