The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 includes provisions for the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), National School Lunch Program, Summer Food Service Program, and WIC. The provisions for CACFP are focused on the promotion of nutrition and wellness, reducing paperwork, and increasing access to after-school meals for school-age children.
In February 2007, the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) published Getting Organized: Unionizing Home-Based Child Care Providers. That report focused on the growing movement to authorize home-based child care providers—both regulated family child care (FCC) providers and "family, friend, and neighbor” (FFN) care providers who are exempt from regulation but receive public funds—to join unions and negotiate with the state for better compensation and working conditions. This 2010 Update reports on developments across the country between February 2007 and March 2010 (unless otherwise noted) as the movement continues to gain momentum.
