Partners in Quality Care is a nonprofit organization that supports programs caring for youth and seniors in our community. We have years of knowledge guiding child care centers, after school programs, adult daycares and emergency shelters through the CACFP process. Our team offers consulting, training, compliance monitoring, and additional resources to help programs succeed in feeding nutritious meals to children and adults. Our organization has received funding from the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS), Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Blue Cross Blue Shield Center for Prevention, Second Harvest Heartland and the Iowa Department of Education.

Our mission is to pursue health equity by providing resources and support to programs that serve households experiencing food insecurity, and to do so with cultural humility. We will continue to actively disrupt the systemic inequity in pursuit of high-quality care and food program educational opportunities for all.

Our Services

Our team members help child care centers, after school programs, adult daycare and emergency shelters apply for the CACFP. We will train leaders and employees on how to perform daily tasks under the CACFP to meet the standards and receive financial reimbursement for serving healthy meals and snacks.

We provide consulting services to help early childhood programs improve and maintain quality standards. Services include licensing and accreditation support and training.

Our team holds in-person and web-based seminars for early childhood programs to ensure they are meeting state training requirements.
