Technical assistance is the process of exchanging information and / or transferring technical data through an informal non-training setting for the purpose and intent of developing the competencies that enrich and enhance the performance level of Food and Nutrition Professional and strengthen or enhance activities that will improve program performance of the SFA. Technical assistance efforts may be supported by on-site visits, telephone calls, faxes, emails, etc. Technical assistance is not the actual performing of CE's responsibilities but rather providing information on how the CE may properly discharge or carry out the responsibility.
We are here to help child nutrition professionals operate efficiently, effectively and within federal program regulations. Region One ESC provides multiple channels of training, not only on program rules but sound financial practices and methods to make meals appealing and acceptable.
