Default I'm Just Clueless, Needing Help

I work at a daycare in PA. It just opened. My director wants to start preparing meals. She said something about cacfp so I have been doing as much research as possible to get it right so she can get reimbursed but I feel I'm missing something here. I need to apply for this program correct? Where do we go about doing this? Any help is greatly appreciated!

This should get you started: http://www.asppears.ed.state.pa.us/f...PDE400form.pdf

Good luck! It feels overwhelming at first. You got this, though.

You are very welcome!

It is a lot of information, and regulation, to take in at once.

There are many people here to help, though. Feel free to ask away.

The owner of the preschool & daycare center where I am the cook did all the researching and signing up to be in the meal program. (I was a school lunch lady prior to this so I was already familiar with much of the requirements.) She did the applying and emailing with the person from state who came to the facility to qualify us. I met the lady and she looked at my menu and made a couple of suggestions to me, but that was pretty much all that I was involved with the process. I feel like the owner/manager should be the one applying?
