  • Your children benefit from the nutritious meals your center serves
  • You increase revenue without increasing fees to parents
  • You are provided with personal support, training and resources




Who Can Participate?
Your center is eligible to participate if:

  • You are nonprofit or,
  • You are for-profit and have at least 25% of the children in attendance from low income families




Increase Revenue Without Increasing Fees

The USDA Food Program helps cover the cost of food. Monthly reimbursements depend on the number of meals and snacks you serve, and upon the mix of incomes of the children’s families.
