Our MissionTo ensure that all children ages 0-12 years and adults who attend licensed daycare, receive nutritious well-balanced meals. We accomplish this mission by offering training and ongoing technical assistance to day care providers. We work with seniors, families and daycare providers to help create the nutritional foundation for good health.
Day Care Providers!CACFP is a federally funded nutrition assistance program designed to provide healthful meals to children and adults receiving day care. Our services play a vital role in improving the quality of day care by providing reimbursements for meals…making childcare more affordable!
Most licensed day care homes are eligible for our financial assistance, depending on income level. Call us or visit the federal CACFP site to determine your eligibility.
