“That’s the director of foster care and social services in Baltimore, Maryland. She and I became close as time went on as I was caring for my son, little Lamont. Ms. Molly McGrath has been a great asset to my life and she has been an addition to my family. When I went through some difficulties because of my sexuality, this beautiful director and friend supported me and taught me about my love, dedication, and my motivation towards my child."

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

CACFP is an under-utilized federal nutrition program that provides free meals and snacks for low-income children in childcare facilities.  In 2010, nearly 130,000 children in PA received nutrition assistance through CACFP in childcare settings.

Current Issue

Nutrition advocates and early childhood providers across the state are partnering together to expand access to CACFP in childcare center and family childcare homes.  If you are interested in getting involved in this effort, please contact us!
