Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)
Meals Program Brochure
The CACFP is a federal- and state-funded program that gives financial aid to child care centers, adult day centers, and day care homes to provide nutritious, well-balanced meals, and supports developing healthy eating habits for children. Until recently, agencies operating after school programs in at-risk areas were only eligible to claim reimbursement for one snack per child per day. However, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 has expanded the at risk, after school program to include reimbursement for a meal as well as a snack.
