CACFP for Family Child Care

The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) reimburses day care homes for a maximum of two meals and one snack, or one meal and two snacks per day per child 12 years of age or younger. Minnesota currently has four nonprofit family child care sponsoring organizations that administer CACFP. Sponsors are responsible for recruiting, training, monitoring and reimbursing family child care providers. Information about Family Child Care Home (CACFP) sponsors, including links to their websites, are located on this page. Visit the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) website for access to memoranda related to this program.

The Cyber-Linked Interactive Child Nutrition System (CLiCS) Administration page includes forms to obtain a new sponsor ID, site IDs and user IDs. New sponsors must complete and submit all application materials before receiving a CLiCS User ID.
