Child and Adult Care Food Program

Funding for Nutritious Meals

No child or adult should go hungry. One program that helps is the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). This important federal program has been in existence since 1968 and provides funds to child care centers, adult daycare centers, emergency shelters, afterschool programs and summer sites so they can serve nutritious meals to the children, youth and older adults in their care. The Minnesota Department of Education administers the CACFP at the state level under the direction of the United States Department of Agriculture.

As with any federal program, the CACFP has rules and paperwork. If you get turned around by jargon or English is not your first language, then Partners in Quality Care can be especially helpful to you!

Partners in Quality Care offers hands-on education and training for programs. We replace jargon with words you can understand. Our multi-lingual team members can speak your language. We assist with everything from the application paperwork to staff training and make sure you understand the rules so you can be successful.
