The CACFP is a program that encourages and enforces quality child care. The CACFP partially reimburses child care centers, family child care providers and other care settings for providing nutritional meals to the children in their care. The CACFP is a federally funded program. There are many organizations that help CACFP run but the top dog is the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Services (FNS). Learn more about the CACFP at USDA’s website, http://www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/care/cacfp/aboutcacfp.htm
