The purpose of Georgia Nutrition and Food Science Foundation is to provide professional learning opportunities, technology assistance, resources, opportunities and support for competitive events in FCCLA and serve as a vehicle for offering industry certification for exemplary NFS programs in Georgia.
NFS programs that have been in existence for three consecutive years can pursue GaNFS Industry Certification. The program will go through a process of comparing itself to the IC standards by collecting evidence and documentation over a three year period to show a history of program activities. The NFS Director will assist and meet with the program instructor over the course of the IC year. When the program has met approval for a formal site review, the NFS evaluation team will spend approximately one day reviewing program documentation, observing and visiting facilities, and interviewing the teacher, NFS students, FCCLA members, administration, and advisory committee members. At which time the evaluation team and NFS director agree all standards have been met, industry certification recognition will be awarded.
