USDA Child Care Food Program Reimbursement

Serve Nutritious Meals and Earn Cash $$

That's right! The USDA Child Care Food Program will reimburse family child care providers for some of their child care food costs.

As part of the USDA Food Program you also get:

  • Priority registration for special workshops just for USDA Food Program participants.
  • Help in working with parents on food-related issues.
  • Assistance in planning well-balanced meals and snacks.
  • Consultation with nutrition specialists.

Remember, parents know that providers who participate in the USDA Food Program serve their children nutritious meals and snacks. That gives you a competitive edge when you market your services.

Sound too good to be true? See for yourself! As soon as you have a permit and children in care, call 703-324-8100 to register for a USDA Food Program orientation, or 703-324-8260 to schedule an in-home USDA Food Program orientation. You can even submit your food program records online using the Web HX system.
