Child & Adult Care Food Program

4CS of Passaic County is a sponsoring organization for the Child and Adult Care Food Program. The food program is a federally funded program, which reimburses registered family child-care providers for the healthy meals they serve to the children in their care. Participation in this program is optional. Providers must maintain program requirements in order to participate in the program. Regular monitoring visits by 4CS of Passaic County staff are conducted to see that the providers are meeting federal nutritional requirements.

For more information, please call our Family Child Care Food Program Coordinator, Enid Santana at 973-684-1904, Ext.  213.
