New and returning Simplified sponsors as well as new Seamless sponsors are required to attend SFSP Training. A Simplifed sponsor or a new Seamless sponsor will not be approved to operate the program unless they have attended a SFSP Training workshop in the current year.This includes sponsors who are switching from the Seamless SFSP to the Simplified SFSP and vice versa.
SFSP Training is not mandatory for returning Seamless sponsors; however, it is highly recommended. New staff members are encouraged to attend as well.
There are 2 different types of training:
- Summer Food Service Program Training (Seamless and Simplified program regulations and other requirements—open to all sponsor types)
- Summer Food Commodity Ordering Web-Based Training (for sponsors who are participating in Food Distribution for the first time)
Please register for all trainings and workshops online at www.ade.az.gov/onlineregistration. Sign up early as trainings and workshops fill up quickly.
