The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) was established for child care centers in 1968 under Section 16 of the National School Lunch Act and the Child Nutrition Act.
CACFP provides aid to child and adult care institutions and family or group day care homes for the provision of nutritious foods that contribute to the wellness, healthy growth, and development of young children, and the health and wellness of older adultls and chronically impaired disabled persons.
Through CACFP, more than 3.3 million children and 120,000 adults receive nutritious meals and snacks each day as part of the day care they receive.
See how CACFP can make a difference in the quality of your program! Whether you are a provider in your home, at a day care center, in a afterschool program, or in an empergency shelter, you will find many useful resources for serving nutritious meals and snacks.
