The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury’s Human Services Department, in conjunction with the Louisiana State Department of Education, announced it will again sponsor the Family Day Care Home Food Program.

The program helps those who provide child care in their homes pay the cost of feeding each child two meals and a snack per each day of care. The daycare provider must be approved for participation in the program.

Any resident of Calcasieu, Allen, Jefferson Davis and Beauregard Parishes are eligible to participate in the program if they are currently providing child care services to children from birth to twelve years of age in their home. Homes must also meet fire and safety standards as established by the State of Louisiana.

Call 337-721-4030 (ext. 5102) to sign up for the program.
