In-Home Childcare Providers

In-home childcare providers offer care for young children in a family-like environment.
Through the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), Children’s Hunger
Alliance assists In-Home Childcare providers serve more nutritious food, and create
healthier child care environments. As one of the largest sponsors of CACFP in the state of
Ohio with over 40 years of sponsorship experience, Children’s Hunger Alliance currently
helps more than 500 In-Home Childcare providers receive reimbursements for healthy
meals and snacks provided to children in their care.

Licensed in-home Type A and B providers in the state of Ohio are eligible to participate in
CACFP sponsorship. On average, providers participating in CACFP sponsorship with
Children’s Hunger Alliance earn an average of $708* per month, or more than $8,500 per
