CACFP Afterschool Meals Guide
An Overview of the Child and Adult Care Food Program for Afterschool Programs in New York
Quality nutrition is an essential health and educational support for children, yet many go without the consistent nourishment they need to reach their full potential. The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) ensures children and teenagers receive high-quality meals and snacks while in afterschool enrichment programs and other care settings, fueling kids’ minds and bodies, so they are ready to learn and grow.
The Afterschool Meals Guide provides an overview of CACFP for schools, community organizations, and others considering serving meals or snacks beyond the school day. For additional information and resources, visit AfterschoolMealsNY.org.
