Home Grown convened a diverse group of home-based child care providers to inform the following recommendations to the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. Participating providers include both Home Grown’s Provider Advisors, who inform Home Grown’s strategies and priorities, and providers in Home Grown’s Leading from Home initiative, who are actively leading, engaging, and supporting providers in their communities. Home-based child care providers shared ideas for the federal and state government roles, including ways to decrease experiences of hunger for family child care providers and the children and families in their care.
