When school is out and parents are still at work, children need a safe place to be with their friends, with structured activities, supportive adults, and good nutrition.
Afterschool programs that participate in CACFP give children and teenagers the nutrition they need, and draw them into constructive activities that are safe, fun, and filled with opportunities for learning.
