Does Your Program Qualify for Child Care Food Program

The Child and Adult Food Care Program (CACFP) provides cash reimbursement to eligible child care centers and family child care homes to supplement the cost of nutritious meals.

The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by Maryland State Department of Education’s (MSDE) School and Community Nutrition Programs Branch and various Maryland sponsoring organizations.

Child Care Centers receive an average of $23,407 per year in cash reimbursements!

A Family Child Care Home Provider caring for 6 children could receive up to $6,630 per year.

By participating in CACFP you will be able to buy more nutritious food and teach children healthy eating habits that last a lifetime.
