What Is This?
An advocacy campaign to show Congress the impact the CACFP has on children in child care and out of school.
We need to take a complicated program and make it real for our congressional leaders as they consider making changes to improve and invest in CACFP.
What's At Stake?
Allowing an additional meal to be claimed, reducing paperwork, increasing access to the program by changing eligibility requirements and so much more.
For CACFP operators serving Adults -
It’s Child Nutrition Reauthorization time. This is the time Congress looks at the legislation that establishes the rules for CACFP. Helping Congress hear directly from the children eating and learning because of CACFP makes it more than just a complicated program, but one that uniquely benefits the health and well being of children.
Examples of What Could Be Shared
Learned about a new food
Taught my parents about ... [insert food]
Jobs during meal time and clean up
Reading / learning about food, meals, and nutrition
Fun ways to serve food (like a sandwich shaped as a bear or fruit that looks like a flower)
Themed meals during holidays or celebrations
