GREAT Foodservice, a program of the NFCA, is a program designed to efficiently train restaurants or institutional kitchens to meet the needs of gluten-free eaters. First, General Managers and Owners get online training and learn the ABCs of gluten-free food preparation: AWARENESS of gluten and its toxicity to celiac, BRINGING in supplies and menu items, and CROSS-CONTAMINATION CAUTION.
After they pass their test, each of their locations is given a toolkit with PowerPoint presentations (with Spanish subtitles) for kitchen staff, logistics templates, and a bilingual DVD for all employees. Each location signs a ten-point contract to commit to train all new employees in the same program and to do on-site quality control testing.
The cost is only $200 for restaurants and health care facilities and $75 for schools.
What an amazing tool! Gluten-free eating out of the home will be much easier thanks to this incredible program.
