“Friendly House sponsors the Child and Adult Food Program, which is very beneficial to my child development home. The children and I enjoy having Lisa and Alice come to my home for inspections. They give me good nutrition information and tips for saving on food costs. I feel very comfortable asking Lisa and Alice questions about nutrition and food preparation. They are a valuable resource to me and my childcare program.” ~Kathy, CACFP Home Child Care Provider
Are you a home day care provider who serves meals and snacks to your day care children?
Would you like to get reimbursed for part of the cost of those meals?
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) gives cash reimbursement to providers for up to two meals and one snack per child per day. Providers are given guidelines for nutritious meals and snacks which encourages healthy eating habits. Training is regularly offered to help providers learn about child nutrition, human development and how to create a pleasant mealtime environment. The training offered at Friendly House is held on-site and is free.
The program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture and administered by the Iowa Department of Education. We serve Scott County, IA. Other program benefits include workshops, newsletters, recipes and activities, and inclusion in any Friendly House programs, events and activities.
