Child Care Food Program Software
The USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a federally funded assistance program offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture which provides subsidies for food to approximately three million children. This program helps ensure eligible children receive nutritious meals by offering financial assistance.
Numerous software programs have been developed to assist participating child care providers with the tracking of meals and other information. These software programs may record daily meals counts, organize menu planning, track family eligibility status (free, reduced, and paid), print meal rosters and report monthly reimbursement amounts.
Rather than purchasing stand-alone food program software, consider the benefits of automating other administrative tasks such as scheduling, accounting, and maintaining up-to-date child and family information records. Software such as EZ-Care2 can manage virtually every aspect of the administration of your child care business in addition to meal counts, menu planning, etc.
EZ-Care2 offers a modular design that allows you to purchase only the features you need. So, if right now you need to maintain child records and track meal information but don't need to track scheduling and attendance, you only pay for the modules you're going to use. Of course, if later you need to add new functionalities such as attendance tracking, you can simply add on the corresponding module.
