Fairbanks Day Care Food Program



The Fairbanks Daycare Food Program is the local child care food program sponsor.  As such, we provide assistance, training, and funds to encourage Child Care providers to serve well-balanced meals to the children in their care.  This service is provided free of charge.  Participants are reimbursed for the cost of serving a variety of foods.  This eliminates your need to charge parents for the meals their children consume.

Training is provided both in your home and through workshops and includes:

Meal planning ideas


Monthly newsletter

Income tax information

Nutrition information

Child activities ideas
