Despite the concerns of COVID-19, the Child and Adult Care Food Program has signed up two new Unaffiliated Centers this past month. Little Steps in Elizabethtown and Busy Bees – Hodgenville will be turning in a report for September. Busy Bees – Hodgenville will be the program’s biggest center. We are very excited to work with both centers during the upcoming year.

Training is coming up for both Family Child Care Homes and Unaffiliated Centers. This is the first year the training will be online. There will be a PowerPoint, survey, and a guest video presentation by Dayna Fentress from the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service in Hardin County. Once the training is complete, we will be ready to begin the new year on October 1st.

As of now, there has been 2 Family Child Care Homes and 1 Unaffiliated Center, that participate in the program, that have been temporarily closed by the state due to a positive COVID-19 case. All 3 facilities have cooperated with the state – with one already having re-opened and the 2 others re-opening within the next week or so.
