Child and Adult Care Food Program
Catholic Charities administers the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), a Federal program available to Delaware-licensed residential daycare providers that supports healthy meals for children in daycare.
Click here to link to the CACFP website to learn more about this program, to become a provider and help children foster healthy eating habits. This is also a great resource to find nutritious recipes for meals and snacks for healthy lifestyles.
HOW WE HELP
CACFP provides reimbursement to licensed family childcare providers for meals and snacks they provide which meet nutritional quality standards. Claims for reimbursement are reviewed monthly for accuracy and menu meal patterns. Field staff monitors participating childcare providers at least three times each year for compliance with federal and state regulations.
For more information, or to enroll your home-based daycare in the program, please contact Catholic Charities CACFP at the location nearest you. Eligibility is free and open to all licensed daycare providers.
