Introducing the Smarter Lunchrooms Technical Assistance Providers' Handbook

Healthy Food Choices in Schools December 23, 2016 Print Friendly and PDF

 

Cover of TAPS Handbook

 

To assist those working to make healthy changes to school food environments, the Cornell Center for Behavioral Economics in Child Nutrition Programs (BEN Center) has created the Smarter Lunchrooms Technical Assistance Providers' Handbook, a 120-page resource containing battle-tested advice and tricks-of-the-trade from our researchers and professionals in the field.  In a frank, friendly tone, this book addresses and solves challenges particular to those managing large-scale interventions.  Specific topics include: networking, communication, research, scheduling, recruitment, team-building, staff training, media relations, and maintaining momentum.

In this webinar, book designer and creator Erin Sharp, MS, MAT introduces the book.  Mrs. Sharp also introduces upcoming resources from the B.E.N. Center, all of which are scheduled for launch in time for SY 2015-2016: a yearlong program of 10-minute mini-workshops for lunchroom staffs with "No Time to Train," a feature for one-on-one assistance with SL Makeovers, and new and updated online resources. 

Learning Objectives

After this webinar, participants will be able to decide if they would like to use the handbook in the future to enact healthy changes in school lunchrooms.  They will be familiar with the book and other B.E.N. resources.  If interested, they can pre-order copies of the TAP Handbook.
