CACFP At-Risk After-School Meals Information Sessions – Fall 2015
No Kid Hungry Illinois and the Illinois State Board of Education hosted a series of regional information sessions on the Child and Adult Care Food Program’s At-Risk After-School Meals Program this past summer. Due to high demand, four additional sessions have been added for the fall. The sessions are geared toward potential new sponsors and sites of the After-School Meals Program.
If your after-school program . . .
- Is located in the attendance area of a school with 50% or more free and reduced price eligible children
- Serves snacks or meals out of your own pocket
- Participates in the National School Lunch Program After-School Snacks Program
- Does not serve food at all
. . . Then you should come learn how you can serve nutritious meals for FREE to all children through the USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program At-Risk After-School Meals Program, which provides reimbursements for snacks and meals served in eligible low income after-school programs.
Topics to be covered include eligibility, application and administration requirements, partnership resources, best practices and grant opportunities.
