Nutrition Services

The first five years of a child’s life are critical to the foundation of nutrition and shaping lifelong healthy eating habits. TRF understands the importance of providing affordable subsidized child care that includes comprehensive child nutrition services. These contribute to children’s physical and mental growth for school readiness. Our child nutrition services offer the following elements that impact children’s learning, development and socialization.
