Module 3 - E.M.A. Updates


Rita Wilson, CFM IT Manager

This module will go over the importance of “how to” and “why” you must collect Free & Reduced Meal Applications.  This is a timely module since your center should be collecting application for every child this month.  The Collection of Free and Reduced Meal applications is the most important activity you do as a CCFP site.  This one application dictates how much you get paid.  Not collecting a free and reduced meal application for a child results in you getting paid at the lowest rate and possibly getting a disallowance. The result of not collecting applications could cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars for every month you do not have applications collected for all of your children.  Collecting these application should be a PRIORITY for your center.   We could not have made this easier for you with E.M.A. (our Electronic Meal Application app).  With EMA Parents can complete the applications on their phone or at your center on a tablet and their application is qualified accurately based on the information they provide.   

Module 4 - Meal Pattern, Menus, Meal Service & Monitoring


Jennifer Heartcastle, CFM Nutrition Manager and Theo Valentin, CFM Technical Assistance Coach Supervisor 

In this module, you will review the heart of the CCFP program, “serving nutritious meals to every child in your care.”  This session will cover the components of a compliant meal and the requirements for serving compliant meals.  You will learn about the importance of following the meal pattern required by the USDA for the Child Care Food Program and how you should be serving meals in your center.  Ashleigh will take you through the importance of each meal component and documenting the meals you serve on the compliant menu form.  Theo will review how a compliant meal service is conducted and will go over the items we review when we monitor your site three times each year.  This informative session is a great refresher for everyone on your staff who assists in the preparation and serving of meals!

*Module 5: Infant Feeding - This module is mandatory for centers who serve infants.
