Food Service Directors questionnaire

CSNA encourages you to assist Sandy Curwood, Child Nutrition Services Director from Conejo Valley Unified School District, by completing a questionnaire. She requests your participation to help identify necessary resources, training, and policies that support food safety and procurement in farm to school (F2S) programs.

Ms. Curwood is a long-time promoter of F2S and ensures our students receive quality meals. She is also an Inaugural Ambassador of the NSD Fresh, Regional, Education-Supportive Healthy Meals at Schools initiative. Ms. Curwood is a doctoral candidate at Iowa State University in the distance Hospitality Management Program and her focus is on food safety issues in produce procurement for traditional and alternative practices.

The questionnaire should take about 15 minutes to complete and must be completed by March 25, 2016. Participation is completely voluntary and all information collected will be kept confidential and anonymous. As a show of appreciation, Ms. Curwood is offering participants an opportunity to enter a drawing for a $100 gift card.
