Child Care/Adult Food Program (CACFP) plays a vital role in improving the quality of day care and making it more affordable for many low-income families. Each day, 2.9 million children receive nutritious meals and snacks through CACFP.
The program also provides meals and snacks to 86,000 adults who receive care in nonresidential adult day care centers. CACFP reaches even further to provide meals to children residing in emergency shelters, and snacks and suppers to youths participating in eligible afterschool care programs.
The CACFP program is funded by the USDA and reimburses child care providers for a portion of the cost of meals served to the children in your care. Child & Family Resources is the sponsoring organization that makes the CCAFP available to Family Child Care homes in Morris County – https://www.fns.usda.gov/cacfp/child-and-adult-care-food-program.
