The Family Child Care Food Program (FCCFP) is a nutrition program that reimburses home child care providers for serving healthy meals and snacks that meet simple meal pattern requirements to the children in their care.
The FCCFP is designed to ensure that children in child care receive the best possible nutrition to help them grow up strong and healthy and to help establish healthy eating habits for life.
The FCCFP is a component of the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program(CACFP).
FCCFP serves 6 counties in West Virginia: Cabell, Lincoln, Mason, Mingo, Putnam and Wayne.
Participating in the food program is truly a win/win/win situation!
Any child age 12 or under that is attending the child care home is entitled to meals.
**You may be able to claim your own children if you meet basic income eligibility requirements, if your child is enrolled in the program (which means that you fill out the same enrollment form that the families must complete), and non-resident children must be eating the same meal. For example, if your child is the only child in the home for lunch, your child cannot be claimed for that meal.
Upon enrollment in the FCCFP, the child care home is classified as a Tier 1 or Tier 2 home based on the location of the home.
Participating home will submit a menu to the FCCFP that reflects the foods served to the children during the month.
Reimbursements are based on the number of meals served to enrolled children, multiplied by the appropriate reimbursement rate for each breakfast, lunch, supper, or snacks they are approved to serve. Participating homes receive reimbursement for meals on a monthly basis
The meal reimbursement rates are federal rates that are published annually.
