Providers Child and Adult Care Food Program

Two out of three Sullivan County child care providers participate in Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). If you are one of these providers, thank you. By participating in CACFP you are helping the children in your care form good eating habits – an important skill learned easiest during childhood.

If you are not one the current CACFP participants, CACFP offers technical assistance, food nutrition guidance, and training hours that you can use towards your regulatory training requirement. The only additional paper work is daily menu keeping.
