Child and Adult Care Food Program
Where Healthy Eating Becomes a Habit!
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) began in in 1968 as an extension of the National School Lunch Program to address the nutritional needs of children in child care homes and centers. Ever since, CACFP has reimbursed millions of child care providers for serving nutritious meals and snacks to children in their care. The CACFP is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). In Ohio, the Ohio Department of Education regulates this program.
