After School At-Risk Supper Program Building Collaborative Partnerships Vickie Hartel, CACFP Coordinator
In October 2006, we piloted with 3 schools. We ended our first year with 8 sites. We used the Component Meal Pattern of a cold sandwich, fresh fruit, fresh veggie and milk.
Today, six years later, we have expanded to: 40 After School Programs at schools and community locations.
Supper Program History: – 3 to 8 sites – 24 sites – 26 sites – 36 sites – 32 sites – 40 sites (As of March 2012)
Breakdown of Salem-Keizer Public Schools After School Program Sites : 19 Elementary Schools on the ODE 50% List 6 Middle Schools on the ODE 50% List 3 High Schools on the ODE 50% List 12 Eligible Location qualified, because they are not listed on the ODE 50% List (schools and community partner sites)
Program Transition 1. In 2010, we transitioned from a cold sandwich entrée to serving a hot entrée at all school sites and all but two community partnership sites. 2. Sodexo staff was hired to serve at school locations.
Meal Service We serve the hot entrée on a paper plate, along with the fresh fruit, fresh veggie and milk which are served in a paper sack to streamline the serving process and also minimize the opportunity for incomplete meals being served and counted.
Salem-Keizer School District Collaborative Partnerships: As we continue to provide a quality program and expand our At-Risk Supper Program, we have developed partnerships with 12 community entities.
