Q: Why should I enroll with the Food Program?
You and the children in your care both benefit! The children eat nutritious meals and snacks in a healthy environment. You receive monetary reimbursement for serving those nutritious meals and snacks. In addition you get nutrition education and training each year that can be applied for IdahoSTARS PDS credit and toward your annual license training requirements.
