The Center for Hunger-Free Communities

Solutions Based on Science and the Human Experience

We were waiting in line for Christmas dinner baskets. We were all raised up together in the same part of town, and we were waiting together. For as long as we stood in the cold, they were uplifted and spirits were high. These are some good, strong women that just need a break. They come to my house and they sit there and wait for me to drop words of encouragement and I just tell them, “You just have to hang on in there.”

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!
