Food Program

Child Care Resources is a sponsoring organization for the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) for Registered Family Child Care in Monmouth County. CACFP is a federally funded program which reimburses Registered Family Child Care providers for the healthy meals that they serve to the children in their care. The CACFP aims to assist child care providers to serve nutritious meals in a setting which promotes and encourages positive eating habits.

The program requires that providers develop menus of nutritious foods for the children in care and submit these menus and meal counts to Child Care Resources. Nutritious meal and snack guidelines are reviewed in regular trainings and technical assistance. Meals and snacks are reimbursed to providers on a monthly basis. Providers must maintain program requirements in order to participate in the program and regular monitoring visits are conducted by Child Care Resources staff to ensure that providers are meeting federal nutritional requirements.
