All of this can get complicated and this is where software solutions can help. At My Food Program, we can accommodate traditional centers that also participate in the at-risk afterschool meals program in a seamless way.

Attendance and meal counts for each program are kept separate while maintaining a simple, fool-proof interface for teachers to enter attendance and meal counts.
