Economic Stimulus: The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)
Congress must ensure that the support provided by CACFP continues through the duration of the emergency preserving the infrastructure and capacity that will be needed again when activity returns to normal. It is vitally important to the strength of the economy to sustain the viability of the:
Child care centers participating in CACFP: many child care centers participating in CACFP are small businesses and all the child care centers are employers in their communities; and
Network of community-based sponsoring organizations that support good nutrition in child care through administering CACFP to family child care homes and centers.
TAKE ACTION TODAY! Tell Congress that we need them to support the financial viability of CACFP so that we can keep
providing food to the community.
