We Care About Children and Families

U.S.D.A. Child Care and Adult Food Program

You know that children need nutritious, well-balanced meals and snacks to be healthy and grow properly. You want to be sure to properly feed the children in your care, but did you know that you can be reimbursed for some of the expenses of feeding those children?


The Child Care Food Program (CACFP) is designed to encourage nutritious meals and snacks for children in licensed child care homes. Your participation tells parents you care about good nutrition.


As a participating child care provider, you will receive reimbursement on a per meal per child basis; receive cookbooks, sample menus, and nutrition activities for children; and are able to call for assistance at any time.


Who is eligible to join the Child Care Food Program?

Child Care Food Program

All Licensed Child Care Providers


Are all children eligible to be on the program?


Day Care Children

All day care children 12 and under are automatically eligible to participate on the Child Care food Program.


Foster Children

All foster children 12 and under are automatically eligible to participate on the Child Care Food Program; however, foster parents must fill out an income eligibility application for each foster child.


Providers’ Own Children

Providers’ own children 12 and under are eligible to participate on the Child Care Food Program if the provider’s household meets income eligibility requirements.
