AOC youth and nutrition services provide services in multiple North Texas counties in the Greater Dallas/Fort Worth, including counties in San Antonio and Kerrville, TX and other counties in rural areas.

The Texas Department of Agricultural uses non-profit organizations called "Sponsors" to work directly with organized child care programs. The Child

Adult Care Food Program is a federal program supported by your tax dollars.

The program was created by congress in 1968 in response to the great need to providing healthy nutritious meals to children of working parents. The program
