The Study of Food Safety Needs of Adult Day Care Centers in the Child and Adult Care Food Program report identified and evaluated food safety knowledge gaps and education needs of adult day care center program operators. To identify and evaluate food safety education needs, the study team administered a 20-minute survey to a nationally representative sample of directors of adult day care centers that participated in CACFP across the United States in 2018. Overall, this study provides information on knowledge gaps related to food safety practices in adult day care centers and illuminates the best way for center staff to receive future food safety training and information support.
