Helping to provide nutritious foods to children in licensed child care homes

Community Service Council’s Child Care Food Program is part of USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), a nutrition program that provides aid to child and adult care institutions and family or group day care homes for the provision of nutritious foods that contribute to the wellness, healthy growth, and development of young children, and the health and wellness of older adults and chronically impaired disabled persons.  

This federally funded program helps children receive the nutrition they need by reimbursing child care providers for part of the cost of the meals that meet USDA guidelines. CSC’s Child Care Food Program sponsors only licensed family child care homes. We contract with providers in Tulsa, Creek, Osage, Payne, Rogers and Wagoner Counties. 

Our Child Care Food Program is currently accepting new providers! 

Each licensed family child care provider who enrolls in our CACFP sponsorship receives a one-to-one orientation and initial training. Providers are required to record menus, keep enrollment and attendance daily. Technical assistance and program site visits are made a minimum of three times per year. We offer yearly training on topics such as food and nutrition, record keeping, safety and sanitation and meal planning.
