The Child and Adult Care Food Program Lends Unique Support

The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) provides money and food to nonresidential child care and adult day care centers and family day care homes to serve nutritious meals and snacks. In June 1992, the program served 1.6 million children at 186,400 sites and 30,800 adults at 1,060 sites. During the 1980's, this program had the largest growth of all food assistance programs. Between 1981 and 1992, total costs increased nearly threefold, from $339.7 million to $1.1 billion (table 1).
