Join the National CACFP Forum and the CACFP Roundtable for the CACFP Kid Ambassador Campaign. Together, we can lift up the voice of CACFP children. They can share with Congress and the community at large what CACFP means to them!
What is it?
An advocacy campaign to show congress the impact the CACFP has on children in child care and out of school.
Why participate? We need to take a complicated program and make it real for our congressional leaders as they consider making changes to improve and invest in CACFP.
What to do?
What’s at stake? Allowing an additional meal to be claimed, reducing paperwork, increasing access to the program by changing eligibility requirements and so much more.
Why Now? It’s Child Nutrition Reauthorization time. This is the time congress looks at the legislation that establishes the rules for CACFP. Helping Congress hear directly from the children eating and learning because of CACFP makes it more than just a complicated program but one that directly benefits the health and well being of children.
Spread the Word! Use these materials to share with the rest of the CACFP community. Let’s see how many CACFP Kid Ambassadors we can find. Use This Link!
Examples of What Could be Talked about and Shared. It’s up to you and the children how you want to do this. They could just stand there and say in a few seconds what their favorite thing about CACFP is or they could show us a meal or a process that has to do with meals and nutrition education in CACFP.
Let’s Do It Again! The CACFP Community has come together to do this before with the CACFP 50th Birthday Card and Reception, CACFP Quilt Project, Paper Plate Campaign, CACFP Take Action Challenge
