Child & Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)
What is it?
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a federally-funded program that provides nutritious meals for low-income children enrolled at child care centers, family child care homes, after-school programs and homeless shelters.
Why is it important?
The At-Risk Afterschool Component of CACFP allows schools and child care centers to serve a reimbursable afterschool meal or snack to children 18 years and younger. Organizations operating CACFP must offer educational or enrichment activities for children to participate in, but students do not have to participate in the activities offered in order to receive a meal.
Who is eligible?
All school children age 18 years and younger are eligible to receive a meal or snack after school hours to sustain them before returning home in the evening.
