"Providing reimbursable meals and snacks to children, adults, and disabled adults" - TDA website
| "The Child and Adult Food Program (CACFP) reimburses child care centers, day care home providers, and adult day care centers for a percent |
of the cost associated with serving approved meals and snacks to children and adults in Texas. The
goal of the CACFP is to improve and maintain the health and nutritional status of children and adults,
promote development of good eating habits, and integrate nutritious food service with organized
child and adult day care services." - TDA website.
Reimbursable Meals Child and Adult care centers may be reimbursed
for two meals and one snack or two snacks and
one meal which meet the meal patterns
established by the USDA. Meals are described as Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper. Snacks are
described as AM snack, PM snack, and Evening snack. CACFP payments are based on the number
of approved meals served to enrolled children, multiplied by the current reimbursement rate for
each meal and snack.
Who We Sponsor
|The Child and Adult Food Program is available to |
different types of facilities. These facilities may participate in the Child and Adult Food Program independently, with the state, if they so choose. Many centers find with a sponsor, like ourselves, the amount of time and effort spent keeping accurate records and completing state required paperwork is reduced. This enables the center to efficiently participate in the program while awarding more time to focus on the needs of their centers.
