Meal Service Program
CCSA’s Meal Service Program provides two nutritious meals plus one nutritious snack per day to children enrolled in participating child care centers. Following U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines, the catered meals provide ample portion sizes that meet or exceed Child and Adult Care Food Program standards. By purchasing food in bulk, the Meal Service Program allows child care centers to purchase nutritional meals and snacks at cost, without having to maintain expensive kitchens. It also allows directors to focus more of their attention on quality care instead of on shopping, menu planning, and cooking. To participate in the Meal Services Program, centers must maintain at least a three star license or be working toward a three star license through one of CCSA’s local quality improvement projects. This program is primarily available to child care programs in Durham and Orange counties.
