What is the Child Care Food Program?

       The Child Care Food Program is a federally funded program by the United States                              Department of Agriculture (USDA), which is sponsored locally by Infant and Child

       Nutrition, Inc. for licensed family child care home providers. 

       Family child care home providers must plan and serve nutritious foods that meet the

       requirements for balanced meals, and will be reimbursed for approved meals and  

       snacks served to enrolled children.  The USDA plays a vital role in improving the      

       quality of child care and by making it more affordable to serve healthy meals and

       snacks to children.

What Is Required to Participate in the Child Care Food Program?

     Participants must:

  • Be a licensed child care home

  • Agree to feed children (newborn to 12 years) menus according to the USDA guidelines

  • Keep an accurate count of all children served at each meal and/or snack

  • Submit required paperwork to Infant and Child Nutrition, Inc. by the 2nd of the following month 

  • Allow a sponsor representative to review their meal service during business hours 

  • Not discriminate against any child based on race, national origin, sex, age or disability

  • Provide all eligible children the same meal at no additional cost to the parent of guardian
