WDE announces Wyoming Child and Adult Care Food Program sites for 2020-21

The Wyoming Department of Education announced the participating Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) organizations in Wyoming. 

The Child and Adult Care Food Program reimburses participating organizations for nutritious meals and snacks served to children in child care centers and family day care homes. The program also teaches good eating habits and assures that well-balanced, nourishing meals are served in these participating centers.

Completing the income application while visiting one of the various centers helps that center receive meal reimbursement for the meals they serve. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), foster children, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and eligibility based on household income qualify for the meal claim reimbursements to the center as defined by the USDA Eligibility Guidelines.

Organizations are reimbursed for meals provided to children who are up to 12 years of age. The same meals must be made available to all enrolled children at no separate charge.
