Meals

Food and Nutrition Program

The children who attend the child development centers at Rancho Santiago Community College District receive their meals and snacks at no charge.
Our centers participate in the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). All meals are planned to meet the nutritional needs of the children served and CACFP guidelines. Meals are served family style, are culturally sensitive, well balanced and flavorful.

Additional information about the food program:
• Menus are posted on the main bulletin board as well as in every classroom.
• Food alternatives will be substituted.
Infant and toddler feeding patterns and needs are addressed individually
• cooking experiences are an important part of our program and will be
offered in the classrooms on a regular basis.

Our programs participate in Champions for Change Network for Healthy California which enhances our program with nutrition education activities for children in the classroom as well educational information and workshops for parents.
