UCHRA announces local food program

Posted on Thursday, August 21, 2014 at 4:41 pm

Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency (UCHRA) has announced its sponsorship of the Child and Adult Care Food Program in Lincoln County.

The CACFP, administered by the Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency in 25 middle Tennessee counties, reimburses participating day care home providers all or part of the costs of providing healthy nutritious meals and snacks to children in their care.

The level of reimbursement depends upon certain economic criteria.

The CACFP, sponsored statewide by the Tennessee Department of Human Services and funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, serves to ensure that children enrolled in private day care homes receive nutritious meals and snacks.

Day care providers interested in learning more about or enrolling in the CACFP are encouraged to contact UCHRA for more information.

Questions should be directed to Christa Widener, UCHRA Child Care Manager, at (931) 528-1127. Neither UCHRA nor its providers discriminate against any participant because of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
