Northeast Iowa Community College’s (NICC) on-campus Child Development Center announces its sponsorship of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).
Institutions who participate in CACFP may provide meals at a cost of $1 for breakfast, 1.50 for lunch, and .50 for snacks to enrolled children/adults at the college’s Child Development Center.
Reduced fees for those children/adults that are eligible are .30 for breakfast, .40 for lunch, and .15 for snacks. To apply for free or reduced price meals, parents must fill out an Iowa Eligibility Application. All families are given forms at the time of guaranteed enrollment into the program.
Meals are provided without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. CACFP plays a vital role in improving the quality of day care for children and elderly adults by making care more affordable for many low-income families. As a U.S. Department of Agriculture program, CACFP delivers assistance to 2.9 million children and 86,000 adults through nutritious meals and snacks each day as part of their day care.
