Child Care Food Program Provider Requirements

Requirements and obligations of Child Care Providers on the Food Program:


Nutrition Education Training

Providers must attend at least one nutrition education training each fiscal year. There are several trainings offered throughout the county each year. Check here for a listing of upcoming trainings.


Monitoring Visits

Monitoring the Food Program is required three times per program year; October 1st – September 30th.

  • The three required yearly visits will be unannounced.
  • At least once of the three required yearly visits must be during a meal service so that meals claimed for reimbursement can be observed. Providers must notify CCFP staff if they will not be home during scheduled meal times by calling 461-2904 and leaving a message.


During these monitoring visits, the Sponsor representative of the Child Care Food Program will:

  • Record all observations and recommendations on a DCH Site Monitor Report
  • Check meal attendance and menus to be sure that records are up to date and attendance is kept on a daily basis
  • Check attendance by comparing the full names and ages of the children present to the attendance forms
  • Check for license capacity compliance – providers operating over capacity will be reported to the Department of Social Services (DSS)


Paperwork Reminder!

Food Program paperwork is due on the 5th of every month by 5:00 p.m. Late paperwork is accepted through the 15th of each month for a late reimbursement.
