The Annual Food & Fitness Conference is planned and presented in March or April to provide up-to-date research based in-depth training for nutrition and health professionals on a current nutrition and/or fitness issue.  Professional credits are made available to dieticians and dietetic interns.  For further information contact Jeanne Darling who is part of the conference planning team at (607) 865-6531.


The Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 29th Annual Food & Fitness Conference was held at the Foxcare Center Conference Room on Monday, June 17, 2013 from 2:00 to 4:30 pm. An in-depth presentation of the School Breakfast Program Changes for 2013-2014 was the topic. A representative from the State Education Department Child Nutrition Program communicated the changes in an easy to understand format.

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA) requires changes to Nutrition Standards in the Child Nutrition Programs, based on a multi-year phase-in. In school year 2013-2014, significant changes to the School Breakfast Program are required. Training, technical assistance and guidance are the keys to successful implementation of the changes.

School lunch managers, school professionals, health professionals and parents were invited to hear about all of the changes to the School Breakfast Program and an update of changes to Child Nutrition Program operations for the 2013-2014 school year. In addition, participants heard some inspiring stories of best practices and success from other schools.

The conference was sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension Delaware County and the Delaware County Rural Healthcare Alliance. Email or contact Jeanne Darling or Nan Cazzolla at 607-865-6531 with any questions.
