WDE Announces Wyoming Child and Adult Care Food Programs Sites

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Education announced the participating Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) organizations in the State of Wyoming today. The CACFP provides reimbursement for nutritious meals and snacks served to eligible children in child care centers, family day care homes, as well as to eligible adults in adult care centers. The CACFP teaches good eating habits and assures that well-balanced, nourishing meals are served to children in these participating centers.

Organizations are reimbursed for children aged birth to 12 years of age. The same meals must be made available to all enrolled children at no separate charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, disability or age, and there is no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

All children who are part of a SNAP or FDPIR household are eligible to receive free meal rate for the participating center. A foster child and a head start child are eligible to receive free meal rate for the participating center. TANF participants will be eligible to receive free or reduced meal benefits for the participating center depending on income. Income Eligibility Guidelines that determine what the reimbursement will be for each participating center.
