FDA’s Education and Outreach Program Targeting School-Aged Children (U48)


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) is announcing its intent to accept and consider a single source application for the award of a cooperative agreement to Graduate School USA in fiscal year 2015 to support educational outreach programs targeting school-aged children which promotes FDA's mission. As part of its mission to promote and protect public health, the educational program's mission is to perform outreach to school-children using FDA approved food safety and nutrition messages. This proposed cooperative agreement requires the supporting organization to provide teachers for one school year to extend CFSAN's outreach into schools. Specific objectives of this support are to: 1. Provide thirty-seven (37) teachers from diverse United States (U.S.) schools a week-long course in food science in the Washington, DC metropolitan area; 2. Distribute approved food science curricula and other materials for the train-the-teacher session and exhibit at the national National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and regional NSTA conferences; and 3. Facilitate, identify, and prioritize technical assistance and development needs, develop strategic and project plans, and allocate resources to coordinate FDA training program components for U.S. teachers actively incorporating FDAâ₏™s food safety and nutrition curriculum in their classrooms, as specified in the various training components of this proposed cooperative agreement.
