Welcome to the Child Care Food Program

The Child Care Food Program (CCFP) offers lifetime benefits. Proper nutrition during the early years of childhood ensures appropriate development and reduces physical and educational problems later in life.


The preschool years are when eating patterns and habits are being established that may determine the quality of one’s diet throughout life. Children who are in day care with providers participating on the CCFP are given the opportunity of nutrition education by providers who understand their role in shaping attitudes toward the acceptance of

nutritious foods.

"I would recommend the food program to every provider. It helps with the shopping bill and the trainings are very helpful. The paperwork takes no time at all to fill out because they offer the online program"
