The goal of the CACFP is to improve and maintain the Health and Nutrition status of children and adults in care while promoting the development of good eating habits.
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is funded and administered at the Federal level by the Food and Nutrition Service, an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The CACFP provides Federal funds to nonresidential child and adult care facilities, emergency shelters, eligible after school programs and family day care providers who serve nutritious meals and snacks. In Arizona, the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) directly administers the CACFP.
