UETHDA-Upper East TN Human Development Agency - Kingsport - Child and Adult Care Food Program

BY UETHDA-Upper East TN Human Development Agency - Kingsport

CACFP is a federally funded program that provides reimbursement for eligible meals that are served to participants who meet age and income requirements. Administrative payments are also provided for those agencies that sponsor the participation of day care homes. All payments are based on annual rates established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). CACFP provides aid to child and adult care institutions and family or group day care homes for the provision of nutritious foods that contribute to the wellness, healthy growth, and development of young children, and the health and wellness of older adults and chronically impaired disabled persons. Research shows that well-nourished children are healthier, more attentive, and have better mental performance than children who are under-nourished. Findings also indicate that children served by CACFP eat healthier than children who bring food from home. The CACFP helps facilities implement “best practices” to ensure children have access to a variety of nutritious foods.
