The goal of the USDA’s Child and Adult Care Program (CACFP) is to improve the health and nutrition of children and adults in the program while promoting the development of good eating habits through nutrition education. The CACFP meal patterns helps to ensure children and adults receive wholesome and nutritious meals. The meal patterns focus on providing a variety of nutrient-dense foods such as whole grain, vegetables, fruits, and fat-free and low-fat milk, while reducing added sugars and fat.

The Child and Adult Care Food Program provides assistance to At-Home Daycares and Daycare Centers through Central Kentucky Community Action. Currently we serve 25 Daycare Centers and 23 At-Home Centers. Three unannounced monitor reviews per year are conducted at each site. All sights receive annual training for staff as well as the monitor reviews. Some of the annual training was completed on-line this year due to COVID in the Daycare Centers.

If you are a Family Child Care Home or Unaffiliated Center that would like to participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program please call the Director Cathy Sparrow at 270-699-0896.
