Food & Supply Source and Child Nutrition Labels The Child Nutrition (CN) Label program was established in 1984 in order to help identify qualifying manufactured food items as being creditable for the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Prior to the establishment of the CN Label program, it had become increasingly difficult for CACFP operators to determine which processed and complex food items were creditable.

Last year the Head Start budget cuts that came by way of sequestration nearly crippled the early childhood education program, causing many facilities to shut down, while low-income children and their families across the country suffered. President Obama has called on Congress again and again to help local state governments pay for high-quality preschool education – not just any early learning program, but quality learning that is offered at Head Start programs. This is not a new request. The call for high-quality education for children under the age of...

However, it is important to reduce office supply costs whenever you can to ensure that the money for your Head Start program is being used as effectively as possible. One way to accomplish this is through...

Wholesale Cleaning Supplies: Ways to Lower Costs for Head Start When it comes to providing a quality program for early childhood education, Head Start gets top marks nationwide. However, with the many budget cuts that federal legislators have made to these programs in recent years, it has become important to lower costs for Head Start operations wherever possible.
