Overview

The federal Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) provides nutritious meals to children and adults in emergency housing, child care, adult care, and other settings throughout the United States. Through a partnership with the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Supportive Housing (OSH), we offer capacity-building training and technical assistance to seven family emergency housing shelters to improve each site’s ability to provide safe and nutritious meals for families in the shelter.

Through quarterly training, provider meetings, and on-site visits, HPC works with OSH and emergency housing sites to build knowledge and skills about meal patterns, food safety, compliance with federal CACFP regulations, and food purchasing, preparation, and cooking. Training efforts result in increased capacity of emergency shelters to prepare nutritious meals for shelter residents.
