NYS Network for Youth Success Hosts CACFP Enrollment Awareness Month

January 16, 2017
By
Krista Hesdorfer

Our CACFP outreach partner New York State Network for Youth Success has developed a month-long agenda of webinars, Twitter chats, and other opportunities for programs and providers to learn about serving afterschool meals through the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).

CACFP provides per-meal reimbursements to qualified enrichment programs in eligible low-income areas serving meals and/or snacks to students PreK-12 after school, on weekends, or during breaks throughout the regular school year. To learn more about CACFP eligibility, program administration, meal pattern requirements, and more, visit our recently relaunched webpage AfterschoolMealsNY.org. CACFP is also available in early care settings, including home-based and center-based childcare; visit ChildCareMealsNY.org to learn more.

The CACFP Enrollment Awareness Month agenda is available below, along with links to the webinars and other resources referenced throughout. Please note that though the agenda provides a suggested schedule for viewing and learning, the resources on AfterschoolMealsNY.org are available for use at any time and interested providers are always welcome to contact NYS Network for Youth Success or Hunger Solutions New York to learn more about CACFP.

To apply for CACFP, contact the NYS Department of Health; call (518) 420-7400 or email cacfp@health.ny.gov using the subject line “Outreach Coordinator.”
