California school nutrition directors, supervisors, menu planners, and staff are invited to attend our webinars on a variety of menu planning topics. Our webinars focus on requirements for the selected topic, and any changes resulting from the new USDA menu planning requirements.

The California Professional Nutrition Education and Training (Cal-Pro-NET) network is a collaborative effort between the California Department of Education and institutions of higher learning that represent the three public college systems in the state.

Cal-Pro-NET serves as a statewide resource for professional development and training to help school nutrition personnel meet the program requirements for serving nutritious school meals. The UC Davis Center for Nutrition in Schools is designated as the Cal-Pro-NET Center representing the University of California system, providing training and resource materials targeted mainly to established school nutrition directors, nutrition education specialists, and school administrators.
