Good luck!

 

The CACFP community and the CACFP Roundtable work together to provide support to those who need it. Without your participation and engagement the CACFP Roundtable cannot continue to help you advocate for policy improvements, relevant resources and information. Thank you for the time and support you have already given us. If you're looking for other ways to "give" throughout December, you could consider one of these ideas!

  1. Make a Donation

  2. Share Your Story (it doesn't have to be COVID-19 related) or have the children share theirs!

  3. Volunteer Your Time

  4. Become a CACFP Roundtable Member
