Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

Child Care Food Program

CCSA also sponsors the USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program for family child care homes in Durham and surrounding counties. Funded under the National School Lunch Act, the Child Care Food Program (CCFP) is designed to improve the nutritional status of young children in child care by providing financial assistance to child care programs. Family child care providers must have a sponsoring agency, such as CCSA, to participate. When participating providers serve nutritious meals to the children in their care and keep daily records such as meals served and attendance, they receive per meal reimbursements for food expenses. Participants also receive nutritional workshops, recipes, tips and on-site nutrition consultations.
