We just want to remind you again that we have officially moved. Our new address is 2117 Lafayette Blvd. Fredericksburg, Va. 22401. We were unable to keep our old phone number. The new number is 540-940-6286. Our fax number is 540-940-6291. Please pay attention to the address that you are using when you mail in your menus. Many of you are still mailing to our old address, and we won’t have access to them soon.

 

For family providers that use our services for USDA, we still recommend that you do not drop your menus off if we are not there. We do have a locked mailbox now. We recommend that you mail them to us as soon as possible after the end of the month.  This way, they are received in the office by the time we file the claim.

We are excited to announce that we are finally approved as USDA / CACFP sponsors for unaffiliated child care centers. As we all know, every little bit helps. Here is how much joining USDA/CACFP can help your program:

We don’t have as many classes because this is the end of our fiscal year for funding. We hope that we will receive continued funding in July. We are still available to assist you with all of our other services, including classroom observations,professional development, program visits, answering questions, preparing for licensing, or any challenges that may occur.

Please note: Our grant, that pays for the free classes, requires that we have a minimum of 10 people enrolled for each class, otherwise, they have the option of not compensating our agency for the class. Therefore, if we do not have at least 10 people enrolled a week prior to the class beginning, we will cancel the class. Please let your co-workers know that these classes are available, and encourage them to sign up too. We appreciate your help with this.
