This committee typically involves a client representative, the Shelter Manager (or designee), the Program Services Director, the Chief Operating Officer and the Human Resource Manager from CCYS.

In order to measure and evaluate the implementation of the wellness program /policy, information on the number and types of wellness activities that are conducted will be discussed through the Wellness Committee.

These reports, in addition to meal counts, production records and other documentation required by DOE Food and Nutrition will be reviewed regularly. The will meet as determined necessary, but no less than annually to review the policy and make necessary recommendations for changes to the Board.
