The ongoing infant formula shortage due to supply chain issues, which worsened due to a major formula recall in February 2022, has left many Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) operators concerned about access to formula and their options for safely feeding infants in their care.
FNS has developed the following Questions and Answers to support CACFP operators and the families they serve during this unprecedented and evolving situation. FNS is also committed to continuing to monitor the situation, meeting with key stakeholders, and providing technical assistance to state agencies as issues arise. Additional questions not covered by this document should be directed toward the respective FNS regional office.
