Parents Information: FOOD & CACFP
The center participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and a CACFP application must be filled out for each child. This application allows the center to obtain reimbursement for a portion of our food cost. New applications are required each year in September.
As part of the Child and Adult Care Food Program, we are required to serve certain components and certain amounts at each meal. We carefully maintain these specific requirements as set out by the CACFP. Copies of the exact requirements are available in the office, and weekly menus are posted on the bulletin board in the front entry, listing breakfast, lunch and snack items.
Each child must be here by 7:55 a.m. if he is to have breakfast. NO FOOD may be brought into the center except for birthday parties. No chewing gum is allowed. Birthday parties or other special events must be scheduled in advance with the office. It is preferred that these parties are scheduled at snack time (2:30); however, they may be celebrated at lunchtime.
