Are You Interested In Training or Developing Materials for ICN?

The mission of the Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) is to provide information and services that promote the continuous improvement of child nutrition programs.  Every day the Institute strives to achieve its vision to be the leader in providing education, research, and resources to promote excellence in federally funded child nutrition programs.

One way ICN fulfills its mission and vision is to partner with experts in the field of child nutrition to deliver training and develop new resources.

If you have expertise in the successful operation of federally funded child nutrition programs – in the school or child care setting – ICN is looking for you!

Preferred Trainers

To deliver training programs to child nutrition professionals across the country, ICN selects trainers based on their experience, education, and expertise.


Like trainers, consultants are chosen to develop education and training materials based on their experience, education, and expertise. To develop resources for ICN, consultants may be asked to submit a proposal in response to a specific request outlining the details of a project.

There is no standard rate of compensation for resource development. Compensation is negotiated on a project by project basis, and contracts are issued for each individual project.
