HOW TO APPLY FOR THE CHILD AND ADULT CARE FOOD PROGRAM
This class is for the owner or administrator of licensed child or adult day care centers wishing to apply for participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) who wish to receive reimbursement for serving well-balanced meals and encourage good eating habits in a CACFP setting. Organizations that participate in the CACFP must help ensure the delivery of benefits to the neediest children or adult day-care participants in the community. The CACFP is available for eligible child-care centers, outside-school-hours programs, adult day-care centers and emergency shelters that serve children in low income areas. CACFP is a federally funded program and all CACFP funds received by approved organizations must be spent on food-related costs for the CACFP. All participating agencies must accurately and timely account for how these funds are utilized. This training provides an overview of the CACFP, defines the goal of the program, who can participate, eligibility requirements, how to submit a complete application, and regulatory administrative and operational requirements. Interested organizations wishing to participate on the CACFP will need to send an owner or administrator responsible for direct oversight of the program to this training. You must submit a copy of your current DHS license, Food Service Kitchen Permit, and last 3 months of bank statements with your CACFP application. This training is not applicable for AT-RISK new applicants. AT-RISK new applicants may contact the CACFP Specialist of the Day for more information at (602) 542-8700.
