step

01

Get Your Phone

Record a child or children in the child care or out of school setting sharing something about CACFP that they like.  For example, a favorite meal, a new fruit or vegetable they learned about, how they helped cook a meal, one of their “jobs” in meal prep or clean up, or that they really look forward to that snack after school.

step

02

Parent Release Form

Be sure you have a parent release form on file.

**By submitting a video you are indicating that you have on record a parent release form to use the video, images and likeness of the child(ren) and/or other individuals in the video(s).  Example release form.

step

03

Submit The Video

 Submit your video to samantha@ccfproundtable.org or see here for other ways to share to us or directly to your Congress Members.

 

What Is This?

 An advocacy campaign to show Congress the impact the CACFP has on children in child care and out of school.

Why Participate?

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.

Why Now?

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

Favorite Meal

Learned about a new food

Taught my parents about ... [insert food]

Taste tests

Gardening

Food preparation

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
