Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

Adult Day Care Centers

Last Modified: 07/16/2014

CACFP supports institutions that want to initiate or improve food service in a variety of settings, including adult daycare centers.

Adult care centers receive payments for serving nutritious meals to adults who are 60 or older, or who are physically or mentally impaired to the extent that limits their independence and ability to carry out activities of daily living.   

CACFP meals give adults the nutrition they need as a routine part of their day care program. CACFP reimbursements help to lower the cost of serving meals at centers that provide adult day care services to meet the needs of functionally impaired adults.
