The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a federally-funded program that provides reimbursement for nutritious meals and snacks served to children and adults who are enrolled in participating child care centers (such as Head Start ), day care homes, and adult day care centers as well as children and youth that participate afterschool care programs and emergency shelters. The CACFP plays a vital role in improving the quality of day care and making it more affordable for many low-income families.
The meals and snacks that are served at CACFP facilities must follow the meal patterns established by the USDA. The meal patterns vary according to age and the type of meal served. By planning menus that follow the CACFP meal pattern requirements, children are served meals that provide the appropriate kinds and amounts of food to meet their nutrient and energy needs. Each day, 3.3 million children receive nutritious meals and snacks through the CACFP.
