We are currently able to provide after school meals to student groups through the At- Risk Afterschool Meal component of CACFP ( Child and Adult Care Food Program )

What is the At-Risk Afterschool Meals component of CACFP (CACFP At-Risk)?

The CACFP is a federally funded, State-administered program that provides funding to child and adult care centers and homes that serve healthy meals and snacks. Through the At-Risk Afterschool Meals component of CACFP, healthy meals and snacks can be served to children and teenagers who participate in afterschool programs in low income areas. To participate, these programs must (1) be organized primarily to provide care for children after school or on the weekends, holidays, or breaks during the regular school year; (2) provide organized, regularly scheduled activities; (3) include educational or enrichment activities, like arts and crafts, computer lessons, or homework help; and (4) be located in an eligible area.

Any group/ team leader that is interested in receiving after school meals should email Emily Estes at emilyestes@dekalbschools.net
