Join the movement to to provide free meals to all kids in child care.


Fair Pay for Child Care Providers.
Free Meals for All Kids.

Underlying federal rules for child care meal programs don’t reflect California's true level of poverty—keeping many children from accessing nutritious, affordable meals.

Meanwhile, Child care providers take the hit financially for federal rules that don’t take into account California's high cost of living.

Legislative Action:

Enable all child care providers to qualify for reimbursements equivalent to the highest federal rate for meals served in the federal child care meal program, as the state is poised to do for meals served in K-12 schools.

Food with Care is cosponsored by Nourish California and the Child and Adult Care Food Program Roundtable.
