Faith-based and community-based organizations 
Afterschool Programs

Faith-based and community-based organizations (FBOs/CBOs) may apply to participate in Federal nutrition programs and provide benefits directly to individuals, or may serve as informational resources by referring these individuals to other organizations and agencies that participate in the programs. 

FBOs/CBOs that manage or operate afterschool programs may be eligible to participate in the following Federal nutrition programs:
 

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

Through the CACFP, nutritious snacks are served to eligible youths who participate in afterschool care programs. Eligible nonprofit FBOs/CBOs may include emergency shelters, day care centers, outside-school-hours care centers, settlement houses,  Head Start programs, and institutions providing day care services to children with disabilities. 

FBOs/CBOs apply to the responsible State agency for each state in which they wish to participate. 
 

National School Lunch Program (NSLP)

The NSLP reimburses institutions and organizations for snacks served to children, through 18 years of age, in afterschool educational and enrichment programs. Generally, FBOs/CBOs that are nonprofit, private schools of high school grade or under, or that are nonprofit, private residential child care institutions, may be eligible to participate in the Program.

FBOs/CBOs apply to the responsible State agency for each state in which they wish to participate.
