Family Day Care Homes (FDCH)

Family Day Care Homes (FDCH)
  • The USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Family Day Care Homes (FDCH) program provides reimbursement for meals and snacks served to small groups of children receiving nonresidential day care in private homes that are licensed, registered, or approved to provide family child care, generally 12 years of age or younger.  In order to participate, FDCHs must enter into an agreement with a sponsoring organization ("sponsor").

    FDCH providers serve well-balanced, nutritious meals to the children in their care.  Meals served must meet minimum guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

    For more information, please call the Delaware Department of Education's Nutrition Programs Office at (302) 857-3356, or visit the USDA CACFP Family Day Care Homes (FDCH) website.
