The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) reimburses child care centers, day care home providers, and adult day care centers for part of the cost associated with serving more than 400,000 approved meals and snacks to children and adults in Texas  every day.

The goal of the CACFP is to improve and maintain the health and nutritional status of children and adults, promote development of good eating habits, and integrate nutritious food service with organized child and adult day care services.

 

The following income eligibility guidelines are used in determining eligibility for free and reduced priced CACFP  meals or free milk for the nutrition assistance programs administered by TDA.

Eligibility may be based on total income and size (i.e., number of household members) of a participant’s household. Children from households whose incomes are at or below the levels shown in the appropriate table are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. If any member of the household receives Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) benefits, children are eligible for free meals.
