Providers Choice is the largest sponsor of the USDA Food Program (CACFP) in the U.S. In 2021, we supported child care providers and centers to serve more than 14 million meals and snacks to 485,000 children across Minnesota.
Everyone benefits from Food Program participation! Children receive nutritious meals and snacks while learning healthy habits. CACFP supports business growth through financial reimbursements and ongoing training and support for providers.
We make participation easy! We offer simple, web-based software to maximize your money, personalized training and support, countless nutrition resources, recipes, menus and more! Our friendly and experienced staff are ready to answer your questions.
I have been a part of PCI for many years. The extra income each month is helpful and totally worth the 10 minutes I spend entering my meals and attendance each day.
I have been a child care provider for 22 years and have been on the food program the entire time. It has been a great addition to my business. It provides an extra support system and is such a great way to keep the kids eating healthy and trying new foods.
The staff at PCI are super friendly and knowledgeable. I have been a member for years, and I still have occasional questions. They always treat me, and my daycare children, with respect and kindness.
I have been on the Providers Choice Food Program since 1986 and it has been such a good experience. PCI has provided us with many helpful tools - one of my favorites was the Twist & Sprout cookbook where my kids and I found many yummy new recipes.
