Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)
Snack and-or dinner FREE to all children 18 and under for after-school programs in qualifying areas.
Snacks and dinners are provided through a USDA program called the Child and Adult Care Food Program, or CACFP. The program is designed to provide food to students who are participating in after school activities. Almost any after school program qualifies! A few examples are: tutoring, homework help, basketball camp, life skills, computer lab, etc. Students don’t have to participate in the activities to receive food – activities just have to be available - so you could feed any child who is after school or attending your after school program for any reason. Minimal paperwork – a monthly attendance roster by name and a daily meal count check off sheet. Here are some examples of our attendance and check off sheets. Sites are provided a folder to file everything in the cafeteria and MPS staff will complete a brief training with involved staff prior to starting. Flexible scheduling – you choose your snack or meal times and the days you’d like to serve.
