Dear Child Nutrition Professional,

The Institute of Child Nutrition is inviting you to participate in an online research survey to share your child nutrition program (CNP)’s experience and outlook as you return to school in Fall 2023.  As a valued member of the CNP community, your observations and insights are important.

The information gathered from the survey will be used to improve CNP operations through the development of resources, educational materials, and/or training. 

Participation in the survey is voluntary, and the survey is anonymous.

Questions about this survey? Please email us at with “CNP Fall 2023 Experience” in the email subject line.

We appreciate your time and look forward to your participation!
