Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) provides a monthly financial subsidy, training and technical assistance, nutrition education, and food safety information to child development centers, adult day care centers, sponsored day care homes, afterschool programs, and emergency shelters serving nutritious meals and snacks to eligible infants, children, and adults. CACFP meals must meet the Federal guidelines. 

Reimbursements are provided to reduce the net cost of serving healthy meals and snacks to children 12 years of age and under in licensed child development centers and sponsored day care homes; children 18 years of age and under in afterschool programs located in eligible areas as well as in emergency shelters for homeless and runaway youth; and functionally impaired adults and adults 60 years and over in licensed adult day care centers.
