What is the Child Care Food Program?
The Child and Adult Care food program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through the PA Department of Education. The primary goal of this program is to help children receive nutritious meals while introducing them to a variety of different types of food. The exposure of good nutrition at an early age benefits children by promoting healthy eating habits to last throughout their lives.
The program is available to children, 0 through 12 years of age who are in care in a DHS registered home-based facility, either a group or a family child care home.
