The Facts, Not Fiction: The Financial Impact of the Food Program – Webinar April 12th


“The Facts, Not Fiction: The Financial Impact of Being on the Food Program and How to Claim Food Expenses” is the topic of my webinar on Tuesday, April 12th at 8:30 Eastern Time.

This one-hour webinar will address reoccurring myths about the Food Program and will cover:

  • Why you are always better off financially by being on the Food Program
  • Common objections to the Food Program
  • Understanding the two-tiered system
  • How to report your Food Program reimbursements
  • How to calculate your food expenses

Your food expenses are probably one of your single biggest business deductions. Yet, many family child care providers don’t keep adequate records and under-claim their food expenses.

Learn how to track all un-reimbursed meals and snacks. Find out how to claim food expenses for employees.

Can you deduct food you eat at home? How can you deduct parties for parents and their children at your home? Can you deduct the actual cost of food for special needs children and the standard meal allowance rate for the other children? How can you deduct food expenses for food you eat away from your home?

This webinar will answer these questions and more!
