Join us and NYS Network for Youth Success as we celebrate NY CACFP Week, an opportunity to recognize the invaluable work of NY’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) providers, and encourage more eligible providers to join. CACFP [https://hungersolutionsny.org/federal-nutrition-programs/cacfp] provides federal funding to help child care and afterschool program providers serve healthy meals and snacks to children in their care. While thousands of providers participate across the state, there is room for growth, with only about half of eligible child care providers — and even fewer afterschool programs — currently enrolled.
This NY CACFP Week, share your CACFP success story on social media or use one of these sample posts:
#CACFP helps #afterschool and #childcare providers pay for healthy meals & snacks for kids in their care. In NY, thousands of providers participate, but many more could! Learn more: https://ChildCareMealsNY.org #CACFPweekNY
This #CACFPWeekNY, we are extending a huge THANK YOU to NY’s #childcare providers, #afterschool programs, CCR&Rs & other #CACFP champions. We are beyond grateful for your work to nourish NY’s children. Learn more about CACFP: https://ChildCareMealsNY.org

Join us and NYS Network for Youth Success to learn how schools and afterschool programs can provide free, healthy meals and snacks through CACFP. We’ll share the basics of afterschool meals, including an overview of eligibility, meal patterns, and reimbursements, then hear from current program operators about their experiences and best practices.
