|Child Care Food Program|
|What is your reimbursement?|
West Virginia is currently ranked third in the nations's obesity epidemic. To combat the epidemic we must teach our children to live healthy lifestyles from birth. Providing healthy nutritious food is part of loving, nurturing and quality in-home child-care.
Catholic Charities West Virginia's Child Care Food Program supports in-home child care providers' choice to serve healthy meals and snacks to the children in their care, thus comforting and assuring parents that their child is receiving comprehensive nurturing care. The program educates and assists care givers in meal planning and application for meal reimbursements, and is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and administered by the West Virginia Department of Education. It is sponsored in all counties in West Virginia by different agencies and is designed to encourage healthy meal choices in homes where child care is occuring.
