How to Apply for Participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) works to assure a healthy, well-balanced variety of nourishing foods for children and adults in day care away from home. The program offers reimbursement for meal service expenses and other aid to eligible child care centers, family and group day care homes, adult day care centers, and outside-school-hours care programs which serve meals to children and adults.
Monthly reimbursements to participating centers and day care homes assist caregivers in providing more nutritious, healthful meals. Reimbursements are based on the number of meals claimed and the family incomes of the children and adults served. Participating facilities may be reimbursed for up to three meals per child per day - breakfast, lunch, supper, and supplements (snacks). Outside-school-hours care centers may receive reimbursement for breakfast, an afternoon snack, and dinner as well as for lunch and additional snacks on weekends, holidays, during school vacations, and off-track periods. All meals must meet certain nutritional requirements to promote the health and well-being of children. When placing children in day care, be sure to ask providers whether they participate in this program.
