    Title: Collection of Contact Information of Schools That

Organizations That Participate in the USDA's Child and Adult Care Food 
Program (CACFP) for Sharing Team Nutrition's Nutrition Education, 
Training, and Technical Assistance Resources.
    Form Number: FNS 891 (Team Nutrition Schools) and FNS 892 (Team 
Nutrition CACFP Organizations).
    OMB Number: 0584--NEW.
    Expiration Date: 60 days after publication of this notice.
    Type of Request: New collection.
    Abstract: Team Nutrition is an initiative of the United States 
Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service to support 
national efforts to promote lifelong healthy food choices and physical 
activity by improving the nutrition practices of the Child Nutrition 
Programs, including the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), the 
National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast and 
Special Milk Programs (SBP and SMP), in addition to the Fresh Fruit and 
Vegetable Program (FFVP), Afterschool Snacks, and Seamless Summer 
Option (SSO). This initiative provides resources to schools, child care 
settings, and summer meal and afterschool sites that participate in 
these programs.
    Team Nutrition uses the Socio-cognitive behavior theory to change 
behavior through three main strategies. The first is to provide 
training and technical assistance to child nutrition professionals to 
enable them to prepare and serve nutritious meals that appeal to 
children. Team Nutrition also increases opportunities for nutrition 
education through multiple communication channels to help children gain 
the knowledge, skills, and motivation to make healthy food and physical 
activity choices as part of a healthy lifestyle. Finally, Team 
Nutrition helps to build and bolster support for healthy school and 
child care environments that encourage nutritious food choices and 
physically active lifestyles.
    Since 1995, Team Nutrition has collected information from schools 
via the Team Nutrition Database, to communicate releases and updates of 
Team Nutrition resources. In order to reach CACFP program operators and 
providers, FNS is expanding the database to collect the contact 
information of interested CACFP organizations (such as Sponsoring 
Agencies and Independent Centers). Those eligible entities that choose 
to input their information into the database, via the online enrollment 
forms either for Team Nutrition Schools or for Team Nutrition CACFP 
Organizations, will receive electronic correspondence, such as monthly 
newsletters and promotions that announce the availability of new and 
updated Team Nutrition materials that support nutrition education and 
provide technical assistance to foster an environment of health. This 
database allows the opportunity for the enrolled entities to affirm 
their commitment to childhood nutrition & wellness while gives the 
opportunity to collaborate with other peers.
    The collection of the school contact information is currently 
approved under OMB #0584-0524 Generic Clearance to Conduct Formative 
Research, which expires on September 30, 2019. Since FNS wants to 
expand this data collection to include CACFP program operators and 
providers, FNS is creating a new information collection which will 
cover both activities. Once this new collection request has been 
reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget, FNS will remove the 
burden associated with the Team Nutrition school contact information 
from OMB #0584-0524.
    Affected Public: Business or Other For Profit; Not For Profit; and 
State, Local and Tribal Government: Respondent groups identified 
include: (1) Organizations that have a CACFP agreement with the States 
and (2) Schools that participate in the NSLP.

respondents is approximately 122,664; 22,664 are CACFP's organizations

down as follows: 20,095 CACFP sponsors: Centers only; 791 CACFP 
sponsors of all home care; and 1,778 CACFP sponsors of adult care.
    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: The total estimated 
number of responses per all of the respondents for the entire 
collection is 2. The CACFP's organization and the schools will be asked 
to voluntarily complete one (1) enrollment form and submit changes as 
needed.
    Estimated Total Annual Responses: 245,328.
    Estimated Time per Response: The estimated time of response varies 
from 0.083 to 0.25 hour (5-15 minutes), with an average estimated time
