Overview

The federal Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) provides nutritious meals to children and adults in emergency housing, childcare, adult care, and other settings throughout the United States. Through a contract with the Philadelphia Office of Homeless Services (OHS), Health Promotion Council (HPC) offers specialized capacity-building services to six family emergency housing shelters to improve each site’s ability to provide safe and nutritious meals for families living onsite.

These services include: menu development according to federal and City of Philadelphia Nutrition Standards, biannual culinary and nutrition trainings for food service staff, individualized training and technical assistance to food service staff, and ServSafe® certification training. Training efforts result in increased capacity of emergency shelters to prepare nutritious meals for shelter residents. Additionally, HPC issues all monetary reimbursement/incentives to designated housing providers that are compliant with the program in accordance with CACFP contract.
