Federal Program Offers Free Day-Care Meals

All day-care facilities and their participants should be aware that children and adults enrolled in day-care facilities may be eligible for free meals through the Child and Adult Care Food Program coordinated by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, the NJ Department of Agriculture said today.

Meals are available at no separate charge to all enrolled participants in the Child and Adult Care Food Program and are served without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability. 

Following are the Income Eligibility Guidelines used in determining eligibility for free and reduced price meals for the period from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013:

  2. “The Child and Adult Care Food Program is funded by the Food and Nutrition Service, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) ”

    What’s not mentioned is this:

    The Food and Nutrition Service, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is funded by the income taxes that come out of the paychecks of struggling taxpayers, who don’t get free government money and free government benefits, but who work from morning to night every day to feed their families, and pay their taxes to the government, which then takes their money and funds the Food and Nutrition Service, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

    Just an oversight, I assume.
