Adult Day Care Centers and CACFP Participation

On Demand

In this lesson, we will focus on the adult day care component of the CACFP, which offers Federal funding for meals to adult day care centers. These centers enable elderly and disabled adults to remain in their own home or in the home of a family member, guardian, or other care giver, to avoid premature institutionalization. The CACFP plays a vital role in improving the quality of adult day care for eligible participants, making it more affordable for many low-income families.

The learning objectives for today’s lessons will emphasize key differences in the Adult Day Care program, which include:

  • Recordkeeping Requirements
  • Eligibility requirements,
  • the Income Eligibility Form, or IEF, and family/guardian letters,
  • Meal service requirements,
  • Offer versus Serve, and

Meal claiming exceptions (for CACFP & Title three funded centers).
