​The National CACFP Sponsors Association's (NCA) Friend of CACFP Award honors and recognizes an individual who has demonstrated a commitment to supporting and improving the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) through leadership and initiative. 

Congressman Scott has represented Virginia’s third congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1993 and currently serves as the Chairman of the Committee on Education and Labor. Most recently, Congressman Scott sponsored the bill for improved quality child care access with CACFP support, known as the Comprehensive Child Care and Early Learning Bill to Ensure Child Care for All. Prior to his service in Congress, he served in the Virginia House of Delegates from 1978 to 1983 and in the Senate of Virginia from 1983 to 1993.

NCA appreciates Congressman Scott’s diligent, lifetime work to expand and protect child nutrition programs in our country. We recognize the challenges he has undertaken to push for changes in hunger relief programs and food security for our nation’s children and elderly. We thank Congressman Scott for his work and honor him with the 2019 Friend of CACFP Award.
