Child and Adult Care Food Program

Meal Patterns logo

Texas Department of Agriculture has teamed with Lubbock’s Region 17 Education Service Center to offer training and technical assistance for the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).

CACFP reimburses child care centers, day care home providers, and adult day care centers for part of the cost associated with serving approved meals and snacks to children and adults in Texas. 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.
