CTO participates in food program

Central Texas Opportunities, Inc. announced its participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program. No charges are made for meals served at the centers. Applications have been distributed to each household to determine eligibility for the program. These are used to determine reimbursement rates to the centers and are confidential. They will be reviewed by Central Texas Opportunities, Inc. to determine eligibility status. Households must provide the following information on the application: all household members’ names, the social security number of the head of the household and all household members’ incomes by source or the household’s food stamp or TANF, and the signature of an adult in the household. Households must report increases of $50 per month or $600 per year in household income, and decreases in household size. If a household member become unemployed or if the household size increases, the household should contact Central Texas Opportunities, Inc. These changes may qualify children for free or reduced price reimbursements to the centers. The information that households provide is confidential and will be used only to determine eligibility and verifying data. In the child nutrition program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, no child will be discriminated against because of race, color, sex, national origin, age, religion, political belief, or disability. If you believe you have been discriminated against, write immediately to the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250.
