The USDA CORE Mobile App assists Child and Adult Food Program (CACFP) Sponsoring Organizations with understanding key components of CACFP administration. This mobile app is a resource for sponsoring organizations and includes a series of microlearning lessons designed to be used as a refresher of select content delivered as part of the CORE training.

Microlearning is a short, self-directed learning experience focused on learning specific information in small chunks.  These CORE microlearning lessons complement the CORE in-person trainings and the CORE online courses.
