The Child & Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a USDA nutrition education program. The program allows Day Care Connection to reimburse licensed family day care homes for nutritious meals served. Providers are given basic meal patterns to follow (based upon ages served). Providers then choose the foods they serve the children from the CACFP guidelines.
How Does It Work:
Providers can be paid for 2 meals and 1 snack per child, per day. Nutritious food prepares children for a fun day of learning and play. We’ll teach you how simple CACFP is and provide you ongoing assistance through workshops and home visits. Your own tax dollars are coming back to support serving healthy food in your child care business. Overwhelmingly, parents prefer someone who participates in CACFP, rather than someone who doesn’t.
It’s easy! We’ll never tell you what to serve. You create your own menus using an easy meal pattern. Simply complete menu forms monthly. Then we’ll compute your reimbursement check based upon a tiering system (using parent, census figures or caregiver income guidelines) and the money is yours! You may use our EZ Direct Deposit system or have your check mailed.
