Tell Congress:Support CACFP in Economic Stimulus Package

Updated: Mar 25, 2020

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.

The CCFP Roundtable is backing the recommendations in this letter written by our partners at the National CACFP Forum.

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.
