The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) partners with childcare centers, adult daycares, head starts, family daycare homes, emergency shelters and at-risk programs to provide healthy meals for over seventy thousand Kentuckians. The CACFP contributes to the wellness, healthy growth, and development of young children, as well as the health and wellness of older adults and chronically impaired disabled persons, by providing institutions monetary reimbursement for serving healthy meals. This USDA program, administered by the Kentucky Department of Education, is also a beacon for teaching the principles of good nutrition throughout the state.
