About the Food Program
If you are a Licensed Child Care Provider or a License-Exempt Related provider, you qualify to be reimbursed for nutritious meals and snacks that you serve to children in your care.
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the Michigan Department of Education. Vibrant Futures is a Sponsor of the CACFP in Michigan.
The program is FREE and designed to assist Child Care Providers in planning and helping to pay for nutritious meals/snacks served to children in care, 0 – 12 years of age. It may be possible to claim your own children, age 12 and under, if you meet income requirements or are currently receiving food assistance, and other children in care are present.
Vibrant Futures CACFP services the following counties:
