YMCA of Central Ohio

Child and Adult Care Food Program

The YMCA is proud to participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program. The goal of this program is to increase the YMCA's ability to meet the nutritional needs of children in our
care by getting reimbursed for meals and
snacks that meet CACFP requirements. In
addition, we promote understanding of the
role of nutrition in the physical, mental and
social health of children and help develop positive
food attitudes and eating behaviors.

We truly value the opportunity to assist families in providing a nutritious snack or meal to the children in our programs and to be able to provide families with health, fitness and nutritional information that will help them build good health and eating habits early.
