Take Action with Quick Form: Tell Your Members of Congress to Support a Bill That Strengthens CACFP

Updated: Apr 28

Thank you for taking action! Last week we asked you to take action and endorse a CACFP bill, Access to Healthy Food For Young Children Act, that was being reintroduced in the Senate by Senator Casey.


Now that the bill has been reintroduced to the Senate it's time to tell your members of Congress to support the bill. (link)


How do you do that?

Just fill out this quick form, personalize the email - if you'd like - and click send! This will send an email to your members of congress. Then share the link with your networks!


What Does the Bill do for CACFP?

This critical Act would support healthy nutrition for children in child care through strengthening the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) by:

  • improving the adequacy of benefits by allowing another meal or snack for children in a full day of care;

  • increasing reimbursement rates for providers and sponsors;

  • reaching more providers in rural and suburban areas by improving area eligibility;

  • streamlining monthly paperwork by moving to annual eligibility for for-profit child care centers and;

  • eliminating overly burdensome and outdated paperwork.

What Happens Next?

We expect another bill to be introduced in the house in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for future calls to action!


In the meantime, be sure you tell your members of Congress to support this one!
