Child and Adult Care Food Program

How it Works

Joining the CACFP allows you to earn extra money for something you are already doing – feeding the children in your care. CACFP is available to all legally exempt, family child care, and group family child care providers who care for at least 1 non-resident child. All you have to do is record your menu and attendance each day, send it to us at the end of each month, and receive a reimbursement check 10 days later.

Participating in CACFP through Child Care Council is easy, through Minute Menu KidKare, an online record-keeping program.

  • KidKare lets you to enroll new children, record daily menus and attendance, and submit your monthly claim to us by simply clicking your mouse.
  • You can also monitor when your claim is processed, how much your reimbursement will be, and print a tax report at the end of each year, right in the comfort of your own home.
  • Child Care Council also offers direct deposit for CACFP reimbursement.
