What is CACFP?
- The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is an incredibly important nutrition resource for low-income working families with children in subsidized child care.
- Sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture CACFP provides nutritious meals and snacks to 3.3 million children in the U.S. each day.
- In Pennsylvania, as of July 1, 2013, ALL child care providers serving children receiving child care subsidy are able to participate in CACFP. This includes child care centers, family day care homes and relative/neighbor providers.
