Top CACFP Food Vendors for CN Label Products



Why do many child care centers use food vendors?

  1. Many child care centers use foodservice vendors because they help meet CACFP specifications by providing CN labels and cycle menus.
  2.  Additionally, food distribution vendors are ideal for larger centers because of the cost savings of buying in bulk. 
  3. Not to mention, many daycares choose food distribution services because of the time saved by having food delivered directly to the center.
