What is the At-Risk Program Component of the CACFP?
When school is out and parents are still at work, children need a safe place to be with their friends, with structured activities, supportive adults, and good nutrition.
Afterschool programs that participate in CACFP give children and teenagers the nutrition they need, and draw them into constructive activities that are safe, fun, and filled with opportunities for learning.

We know how hard it is to stay organized with all the requirements of the CACFP. When are forms due? How often do you have to update them? When should forms be completed? This checklist will help you keep track of all of the paperwork. You may want to print it out and hang it on a clipboard in your office or use it to add reminders to your calendar, and refer to it throughout the year to make sure you're on track.
