SALT LAKE CITY – Salt Lake City’s Youth and Family Services today announced the sponsorship of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CAFP).
CACFP is a federally funded program striving to better the wellness, growth, and development of children and adults in the United States by providing organizations with reimbursement for nutritious meals or snacks.
“During this difficult time, many local children are having trouble accessing nutritious meals,” said Kim Thomas, Salt Lake City’s Youth and Family Services Director. “We hope that sponsoring the Child Care Food Program will have a positive, lasting impact on these children as it helps them develop healthy eating habits that will continue into adulthood.”
Salt Lake City residents will be eligible for CAFP benefits if they are enrolled in one of the City’s youth programs.
