This memorandum provides updated guidance and clarification regarding the eligibility of private nonprofit organizations and churches seeking participation as sponsors in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This memorandum supersedes the September 29, 1999, policy memorandum: Guidance on Tax Exempt Status for Churches in the Child and Adult Care Food Program and Summer Food Service Program. Please note that all nonprofit organizations, including churches, must fulfill all application requirements and demonstrate financial and administrative capability for CACFP and SFSP operations in order to participate in the Programs. This memo addresses only the requirement relating to tax exempt status.
