What is the Child Care Component of the CACFP?
The CACFP provides nutritious meals and snacks to infants and children as a regular part of their child care.
A variety of public or private nonprofit child care centers, Head Start programs, outside-school-hours care centers, and other institutions which are licensed or approved to provide child care services participate in CACFP. For-profit centers that serve lower income children may also be eligible.
CACFP reimburses centers at free, reduced-price, or paid rates for eligible meals and snacks served to enrolled children, targeting benefits to those children most in need.
