Building Blocks Ministries has been approved by the Department of Elder Affairs to operate a USDA funded food service program. The Adult Care Food Program provides lunch to adults attending the Day Training Program. To determine eligibility an application must be completed.
A “free meal” is a meal served to a participant who is a member of a household receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, or who receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Medicaid benefits, or participated in the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) is also automatically eligible for a free meal.
A ‘reduced-price meal” is a meal served to a participant whose household income does not meet the requirements for free meals, but is at or below the eligibility standards for reduced price meals according to the USDA’s income eligibility guidelines.
Building Blocks Ministries does not discriminate against any participant because of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. Once approval is received from the Department of Elder Affairs, Building Blocks Ministries will assist those enrolled in their Day Training Program with completing eligibility forms for participation in the Adult Care Food Program.
