Building For the Future
This day care participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), a Federal program that provides healthy meals and snacks to children and adults receiving day care.
Each day more than 2.6 million individuals participate in CACFP at day care homes and centers across the country. Providers are reimbursed for serving nutritious meals which meet USDA requirements. The program plays a vital role in improving the quality of day care and making it more affordable for low-income families.
CACFP homes and centers follow meal requirements established by USDA.
