About Us

Who we are

Founded in March 2010,

It Takes A Village To Feed One Child (ITAVFOC)

is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization sponsoring CACFP and SFSP Food Program in PA.

Our journey began in 2015 with Children's Place Preschool-Spring Garden, providing 400 meals and snacks monthly to low-income communities in Philadelphia.


Today, we proudly deliver over 100,000 meals and snacks each month to 50+ childcare centers across Philadelphia, Delaware, and Bucks Counties.


ITAVTFOC envisions a world where every individual, regardless of background, has access to nutritious food, fostering thriving communities and empowering lives.


We are a 100% minority organization, both in staffing and on the board. Despite starting with a $0 revenue budget in 2015, we now operate with an annual budget close to 4 million, exclusively supporting childcare centers in Pennsylvania.


The majority of the children we serve are from minority, low-income, and disadvantaged backgrounds in some of the poorest communities in the state.

Four Value Propositions

Our vision is reflected in the four ways our program provides free, reduced, and paid meals.


Everything that is part of the meal programs will be paid for by our State CACFP Sponsorship

We will deliver Better Meals, Better Service, Better Administration, Better Quality, &
Better Sponsorship.

Contracted & Registered State Food Management, Catering Companies, & Meal Vendors
prepare and deliver nutritional, quality, and enjoyable meals daily.

We will always use all the funding provided by the State to further enhance the meal
