The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

CACFP is a federal program that is administered through the New York State Department of Health, Department of Nutrition , and  available through the Child Care & Development Council.  CACFP reimburses providers for nutritious snacks and meals that they serve to children in their care.  In order to receive reimbursement, the snacks and meals must meet USDA guidelines.  All registered, licensed, and legally exempt providers are eligible to particpate in the program.
