Child Nutrition for Child Care Providers

At Catholic Charities, we understand how important a nutritious meal is to a growing child’s development. That is why our nutrition specialists help promote healthy eating habits and good nutrition by monitoring and reimbursing child care providers for preparing meals that meet USDA guidelines.

Providers are given a two-hour training when they enroll. The Catholic Charities nutrition staff visit three times per year to offer guidance, support, and oversight.

The Catholic Charities nutrition program is free and open to all licensed childcare providers in Yakima, Kittitas, Benton, Franklin, Klickitat, Clark, Skamania, Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Adams, Cowlitz, Columbia, Spokane and Walla Walla Counties.
