While we have already awarded 15 scholarships to attend the National Child Nutrition Conference, April 22-26, we are thrilled to announce that we're opening up applications for even more scholarships!

We'll be giving away up to 100 scholarships, which is over $50,000 dedicated to enhancing educational opportunities for the CACFP, Afterschool Meals, and Summer Food communities.

For 38 years the National Child Nutrition Conference for CACFP, Afterschool, and Summer Meals child nutrition programs has offered unparalleled training, education, and networking opportunities for the child nutrition community. This year the annual conference will be held in Orlando, Florida, April 22-26, 2024.

Each scholarship will include a complimentary virtual conference registration, valued at over $459. If you work for any of the following organizations operating the CACFP or SFSP you are eligible to apply for a Virtual Scholarship: CACFP Sponsors, Tribal Nations, Head Start, Food Banks, At-Risk/Afterschool, Summer Food Program, Child Care Centers and Home Providers, or a School District.

The deadline to apply is March 15, 2024, with scholarship recipients being announced March 22, 2024. Please visit our website for more information or to apply.

If you had previously applied for a scholarship to the conference this year, you will need to submit a new application in order to be eligible.

Don't miss the opportunity to join members of the child nutrition community for an incredible few days of training. Since 1986 the National CACFP Sponsors Association (NCA) has been the leading national organization for sponsors who administer the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). We provide education and support to thousands of members in the CACFP community and to sponsors of all sizes from across the country. We strive to improve communication between families, caregivers, sponsors, and their supervising government agencies.
