The Child & Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a USDA program supervised by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and sponsored by Frontier Behavioral Health.
CACFP serves 10 counties in the Central/Eastern Washington region. The program promotes nutrition by providing cash reimbursements to “in-home childcare facilities” that serve healthy, well-balanced meals to children.
To participate in the program, daycare providers must:
- Be licensed by the state of Washington
- Enroll all the children they care for in the CACFP program
- Record attendance and meals served daily
