Family Day Care Homes

CACFP provides reimbursement for meals and snacks served to small groups of children receiving nonresidential day care in private homes that are licensed, registered, or approved to provide family child care. 

CACFP targets higher levels of reimbursement to low-income areas, and to day care providers and children most in need. Reimbursements help daycare homes providers supplement the cost of providing more nutritious food to the children in their care.

Health and safety standards, training, and monitoring make CACFP an important component of quality child care, especially in family day care homes.
