National CACFP Week is March 10-16, 2024

What is National CACFP Week?

CACFP Week is a national education and information campaign sponsored annually the third week of March by the National CACFP Sponsors Association. The campaign is designed to raise awareness of how the USDA's Child and Adult Care Food Program works to combat hunger. The CACFP brings healthy foods to tables across the country for children in child care centers, homes, and afterschool programs as well as adults in day care.

 

You can participate by helping spread the word about the CACFP! Visit our Campaign page to download resources for spreading awareness in your classrooms, your community, and at the state level. We also invite you to be active on social media - participate in our Social Media Challenge for a chance to win $100 and have your #CACFPCreditable snacks featured on our website or tell us how you're participating in CACFP Week by submitting your story to CACFP Week in Action. Finally, we're hosting a webinar for each weekday of CACFP Week centered around the topics of Community, Awareness, Children, Food Program and Participation.

New This Year!

The theme of CACFP Week in 2024 is eating the rainbow!

When you register for National CACFP Week to let us know that you'll be participating, we'll send you a sample menu that focuses on eating a different color of the rainbow each day.

NCA members also have access to a new nutrition education PDF called Anytime Rainbow Super Foods. Not a member? Become one today!
