MONROE - Rainbow Childcare of Monroe announces the sponsorship of the Child and Adult Care Food Program at the Rainbow Parkside School Age Program.

The Child and Adult Care Food program receives funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The program provides financial assistance to child care centers so that nutritious meals can be integrated with nonresidential child care services. The goal of the program is to improve the diets of young children and increase the opportunity for children to eat a variety of nutritious foods. The meals and snacks served meet standards set by USDA.

The amount of reimbursement received by the Child and Adult Care Food Program Sponsor is based upon the household incomes of the children enrolled for care. A larger reimbursement is paid for meals served to children from low income households.
