Introduction to TABLE

The TABLE — Taking Action to Build Leadership Excellence — Project is a three-year demonstration effort that has been awarded to Community Development Institute (CDI), to improve Head Start and Early Head Start programs' management and implementation of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). TABLE has been funded by the Administration for Children and Families' (ACF) Office of Head Start (OHS) as a national Head Start Innovation and Improvement Project (Grant Period: 9/30/2008-9/29/2011, Grant Number: 90YD0252/01). TABLE's Recordkeeping system is based on CDI's work over the past nine years as the Office of Head Start's Interim Management Contractor in Head Start programs nationwide. In those programs it has increased the quality and cost efficiency of nutrition services.
