Child Care Food Program
(CCFP) reimburses family child care providers who provide nutritious meals and snacks to children. Ongoing nutrition training is provided. The Child Care Food Program is currently serving 672 children and reimbursing 64 providers for nutritious meals served to children while in their care.
Studies have shown that participation in the Child Care Food Program is an indicator of a quality childcare program. Childhood obesity is often the number one health issue for many of our children, providers that offer the food program are able to assure parents that their child is receiving food that meets national standards and will contribute to their child developing lifelong healthy eating habits.
