Join us and our partners at NYS Network for Youth Success to learn how schools and afterschool programs can provide free, healthy meals and snacks through the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Weโ€™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. Not sure if you can make it? Register anyway to receive follow-up resources.
