Our early learning centers participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), a federal program that provides healthy meals and snacks to children receiving daycare.
Each day more than 2.6 million children participate in CACFP at childcare 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 a daycare and making it more affordable for low-income families.
