Child care food program training scheduled
Placeholder Image
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), administered by the Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency (UCHRA) in 24 middle Tennessee counties, reimburses participating day care home providers all or part of the costs of providing healthy, nutritious meals and snacks to children in their care. The level of reimbursement depends upon certain economic criteria. The CACFP, sponsored statewide by the Tennessee Department of Human Services and funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, serves both to encourage private day care homes to become licensed and to ensure that children enrolled in private day care homes receive nutritious meals and snacks.
