About Us

Minute Menu Systems, LLC, was founded initially in 1993 as T&L Computer Systems, a small company run by a dedicated husband & wife team who created a system to help Sponsors of in-home family child care providers in the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) radically streamline the task of processing monthly CACFP claims from providers. The first Minute Menu System used scannable forms to take processing of a claim from 30-45 minutes of manual work down to about one minute per claim.

Over the next several years, the team grew, we improved our technology, and we expanded our services to more and more sponsors throughout the country. As technology advanced, we added software for providers to claim online and relaunched the original software as a modernized Minute Menu HX, further streamlining the monthly claim process. Over time, with a team dedicated to the study of CACFP regulations and to constantly listening to feedback from Sponsors, Minute Menu HX now includes integrity tools designed around all aspects of the CACFP, including reviews, training, serious deficiency tracking, and a huge variety of integrity reports. We also offer a module to state agencies to improve their ability to audit the CACFP, ensuring greater transparency and integrity in this vital public program.

Minute Menu programs have since expanded to cover CACFP centers and sponsors of centers with Minute Menu CX, which serves traditional and at-risk CACFP as well as the Summer Food Service Program(SFSP). And the universe of products keeps expanding with the launch of KidKare.com, which provides a mobile, responsive way for family child care providers to record their CACFP data and to manage their business finances online.

Minute Menu HX has become the industry standard in the CACFP, Minute Menu Systems, LLC. Minute Menu Systems now serves 400 family child care sponsors and 200 center sponsors in 47 states, covering over 100,000 in-home family child care providers and over 5,000 traditional, at-risk, and head start centers. Our staff includes former sponsors and providers, along with software and training experts and a full team of support staff.

The company’s combination of technology, regulatory, and Food Program operations expertise is second to none. And we work hard to provide statistical support and insights from our unique multi-state expertise to agencies advocating for the Food Program, including the California Roundtable, The Sponsors Association, the CACFP Forum, and FRAC.

We remain dedicated to meeting the needs of all CACFP stakeholders at all levels. Our mission is to improve the quality of child nutrition in the United States by ensuring that all participants in the CACFP have the best management technology available to them and to provide the same to the childcare industry at large.
