Child & Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

Catholic Charities Maine Home Supplies & Food BankCatholic Charities Child & Adult Care Food Program provides reimbursement for healthy meals and snacks to children receiving child care. It plays a vital role in improving the quality of child care and making it more affordable for many low-income families. Funding is administered at the federal level by the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

With our secure, online claim form, you can record everything your food program requires in just minutes. Submitting is easy, with just the click of a button, and your records remain stored online and easily accessible, keeping paperwork to a minimum!

Reimbursement checks for menus that meet USDA guidelines are sent out monthly.


Looking for your
monthly reimbursement?

Unfortunately we have not received the
money from the state for the December checks. 
Knowing that this is a very difficult time for
providers to have checks be late, our agency
will be helping us to cover the cost until we
receive the state money.  This means checks
will go out on Friday, December 19th. 
Happy Holidays!

With several former child care providers on our team, we understand your needs and challenges when it comes to your food program. In addition to free menus and attendance sheets, we are happy to provide support to you at your site, online, or through our toll-free help line:
