We work to promote and maximize participation in five key federal nutrition assistance programs. We consult with, train, and provide resources to organizations, agencies, and individuals to help improve the delivery of these nutrition programs locally, and the effectiveness of their anti-hunger efforts.
Federal Nutrition Programs
The Special Supplemental Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides pregnant women, new and breastfeeding moms, and children under age five with healthy food, breastfeeding support, nutrition advice, and referrals to other helpful services. Dads, grandparents, and caregivers can also apply for children in their care.
The National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs help ensure children are well nourished and ready to learn. These federally-funded programs serve students in public and nonprofit private schools, and residential child-care institutions.
Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)
CACFP offers reimbursement to eligible afterschool programs, child care centers, and home-based child care providers to serve nutritious meals and snacks to children in their care.
