More low-income families will be able to afford healthy meals and snacks for their children in day care under new income eligibility guidelines announced today by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.
Under the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), families with children in child care centers can qualify for free or reduced-price meals if their household income is equal to or less than the income eligibility guidelines. Nearly 5,000 local day care centers and 17,000 sponsored family day care home providers in California participate in the CACFP.
