Self Portrait

"I’m struggling and the depression and the sadness I think really just comes from my harsh life.  When you’re trying to do positive things and move forward and make things better, it’s discouraging and it’s hard and that’s depressing.  It makes you sad.  It makes you tired.  It makes you want to give up.  It makes you wonder "why?" "what's the point?" I want people to see that that’s a person who was just really having a bad day because of everything that goes on.   It’s not always easy for us, period.  Single women.  Minority women.  Women, period.

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!
