The National CACFP Forum has been working with fellow advocates to urge Congress for a bipartisan commitment on the Child Nutrition Reauthorization for 2023 with a focus on investments in the CACFP. Congress needs to invest in CACFP in order to support children's health and wellbeing, the early educator workforce, and the workforce at large that child care providers support throughout the nation. The National CACFP Forum applauds the work and supports Congress has shown to CACFP throughout the pandemic but that was temporary and the community needs a sustainable investment - such as an additional reimbursable meal.
Join the Forum in telling the Senate Agriculture Committee to take the lead in accomplishing a bipartisan bill that includes reimbursement of an additional child care meal or snack. Take action here.
