Family Child Care Providers
Children’s Hunger Alliance helps more than 900 family child care providers provide healthy food and age-appropriate physical activity to children in their care. Here’s an overview of our services:
- Enroll child care providers in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), the federal Child Nutrition Program that subsidizes healthy meals and snacks in child care settings;
- Conduct background checks, arrange health and fire inspections, provide translation services as needed, and help providers to complete applications;
- Deliver CARES (Children are Ready for Education and Success) kits, an early learning curriculum focusing on healthy living developed specifically for home child care settings; and provide additional tools and resources throughout the year (e.g. children’s books, calendars, seed packets to promote gardening).

If you operate a licensed daycare center that currently serves a population of low-income children, we may be able to help you provide healthy meals for the children in your care.
