Luthercare for Kids knows that when your child is hungry or tired, she cannot learn and make friends. We are committed to ensuring children’s basic needs are well cared for while in our center. Luthercare for Kids participates in a special food program to help us provide the healthiest meals and snacks in our programs at no additional costs to your family. Each day your child may enjoy breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.

We are happy to work with families if you child has a certain dietary restriction or cultural preferences. Be sure to speak with the center director about modifications we can make to our menus.
