Last week at the USDA State Agency 2012 Training Workshop hosted by SNA, the USDA announced the launch of its new USDA Foods Mobile site for use on smartphones and tablets. It is currently designed foremost for use by schools and School Nutrition Professionals, but the Department expects to broaden the site’s capabilities to other program components in the near future. The mobile site will allow for School Nutrition Professionals to rapidly and easily access key information such as the current meal pattern guidelines, talking points for parents and other interested parties, and which foods are currently available through the USDA Foods Program. Additionally, schools will be able to locate contact information for their State Agencies as well as information on qualifying for the program. The launch of the new mobile site should assist all School Nutrition Professionals by streamlining access to information for those constantly on their feet. Please check out the new site located here.
