The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a federally-funded program administered by states. CACFP provides aid to child and adult care institutions and family or group day care homes for the provision of nutritious foods that contribute to the wellness, healthy growth, and development of young children, and the health and wellness of older adults and chronically impaired disabled persons.

If you are a household looking for a child care center or adult care center, please contact your state agency.
