Spoonfuls


Spoonfuls welcomes all Family Day Care Home providers to the solution of providing nutritious meals to children every day. 

Since the early 1980’s Porter-Leath has been a sponsoring organization through the Department of Human Services-Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) to provide services and reimbursements directly to participating family day care homes. The primary objective of the CACFP program is to ensure that children 12 years of age and younger enrolled in child care homes and centers receive well-balanced, nutritious meals. Spoonfuls helps family day care home providers meet this goal through nutrition education, program training and financial reimbursements.
