Our Daily Bread of Tn. Inc. is a (501)(c)(3) non-profit child nutrition advocacy organization. Since 1995, Our Daily Bread of TN has been dedicated to the nutritional care and well-being of children. We are contracted with the Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) and funded by The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to administer the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Our Daily Bread of Tn. Inc. sponsors daycare homes & childcare centers throughout Tennessee. Our nutrition programs provide meals for over 4,500 children per day.
