HELPING HANDS, INC.
We feel that every child needs - and deserves - a complete and balanced diet every day. Together with the USDA we can all make this a reality. Being well nourished should not be a luxury, it is a necessity both for the child and for our communities.
Help us help the children! If you, or someone you know, cares for children - either in their home, or in a center - they may qualify for the Child and Adult Care Food Program. This is a win/win! Sufficient money to be able to feed the children in your care a balanced, nourishing meal. While the child will receive all the vitamins and minerals necessary for young, growing bodies to succeed and excel.
Contact us now and get started improving the nutrition and health of the children you are caring for!
Home and Center day care food programs provide cash reimbursements for nourishing meals and snacks served to children ages 12 years and younger in licensed family day care homes and centers. The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) improves the quality of daycare by making it more affordable for many low-income families. The CACFP child care component is a federally funded program that gives financial assitance and nutrition training to qualified day care providers both home based and in centers.
