The CASY Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is designed to help children enrolled in child care facilities receive the nutritious meals their growing bodies need, while keeping costs down for the child care provider or facility. The program does this by reimbursing the child care provider or facility based on the number of meals served to enrolled children and providing ongoing nutrition education to child care providers. This in turn aids the parents, because not only are they assured their children are receiving nutritious meals and snacks, but their child care costs are kept down as well. The CASY CACFP staff also offers continuing education and support to CACFP-enrolled child care providers. This federally funded program is administered by the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Indiana State Department of Education administers CACFP at the state level. CASY is a Child and Adult Care Food Program Sponsor contracted with the Indiana State Department of Education and serves the West Central Indiana.
