Summary
The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) realizes that while food is designed to be eaten onsite in the CACFP, children may benefit from being allowed to take one vegetable, fruit, or grain item offsite to eat at some other time. Similar to the rules governing the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), the AtRisk Afterschool component of the CACFP does not need to seek prior approval by State agencies but must stay in compliance with local and State health and safety codes.

Why It Matters
