DAVENPORT, IOWA (October 18, 2021) — Friendly House participates in the federally-funded Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) by offering services to registered home child-care providers. Providers in Scott County can receive reimbursement for nutritious meals and snacks provided to children in their care.  Children cannot be charged an additional fee for any food served in these programs.

The Friendly House also announces their sponsorship of CACFP within our youth programs. Meals are available at no separate charge to enrolled children/adults in these programs.
