Family Child Care Food Program » Welcome


Options for Learning Family Child Care Food Program serves licensed family child care home providers who participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and the children enrolled in their care.  Providers receive reimbursement for creditable meals and valuable nutrition education.  Our staff ensures that providers understand program requirements and encourages positive eating habits for children in care.  For more information about the Family Child Care Food Program, call (626) 338-4165.



Training for the New CACFP Meal Pattern Is Here!


As you know, the CACFP meal patterns are changing!  The training is mandatory for all providers.  You can take it online, or you can come in for one of the workshops offered over the next few months, but you only need to complete one.


Keep in mind that we will be updating this page with more information, tip sheets, and other handouts about the new meal patterns even after you've completed your required training, so keep an eye out and come back soon!



Online training will be open until July 31, 2017.  You must print your Verification Form, and mail it so we can give you credit for your training.  This will also complete your annual training requirement.  If you have any questions, call our office at (626) 338-4165.  The password for the online training appears in the email you received from us.
