In this era of expanding need for nutrition program services in a competitive environment, understanding the actual costs and value of your meals is essential for all programs. This webinar will focus on helping you understand all the components of your total meal cost (which is not just raw food cost), and will provide you with tools to help you identify and calculate the actual total meal costs. Through the use of these tools, you should be able to better monitor and manage your meal costs, and thus your program costs, enabling you to be competitive as a services provider in today’s environment. This session is designed for anyone who plans or oversees a senior nutrition program budget. Webinar participants will be given a workbook with cost management exercises and will have the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas during the webinar.
