Daycare centers

Children’s Hunger Alliance helps home 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).
