CACFP Training

In-person Training


The 2024 in-person training schedule is in full swing! Whether you are a new or seasoned participant, these training sessions provide valuable information and resources to support the success of running CACFP at your institution. The training will include both lecture-style and interactive activities focusing on all aspects of the CACFP including recordkeeping and meal patterns.

To register for in-person training, you can either look at the "2024 Training Information and Opportunities" document or look through the calendar below. If you need assistance accessing the CACFP Training Calendar, please email Natalie Ostrander.


Online Training



CO.Train offers self-paced, online CACFP training for institutions. This is a five-part series that meets your CACFP Training requirement for participating institutions. These modules are designed to provide an alternative form of training and education to institutions and individuals who are unable to attend our in-person State training, institutions that want to train their staff on specific CACFP topics, and new institutions looking to participate in CACFP.

Access the CO.Train website.
