Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

Celebrate National Child and Adult Care Food Program Week – March 17-23, 2019

CACFP Week is a national education and information campaign sponsored annually by the National CACFP Sponsors Association. The campaign is designed to raise awareness of how the USDA's Child and Adult Care Food Program works to combat hunger and bring healthy foods to the table for adults in day care and children in child care homes, centers, and in afterschool and summer feeding programs across the country.

Below is a link to the proclamation from State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor recognizing March 17-23, 2019 as National Child and Adult Care Food Program Week. The proclamation promotes the significant contributions of providers and sponsors to provide nutritious and well-balanced meals and snacks as part of the CACFP.

This proclamation may be used to promote National CACFP week. For more information and resources check out the National CACFP Sponsors Association website.
