Salt Lake City Announces Expansion of Child and Adult Care Food Program

January 14, 2022

Salt Lake City is excited to announce the expansion of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), which is administered by the City’s Youth and Family Services division. CACFP is a federally funded program designed 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.

“Food insecurity has long been a pressing issue for many of our residents, and the COVID pandemic greatly exacerbated it,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall. “The expansion of this food program within our city will help more families, and especially young children, have access to the nutritious food they need to thrive.”

Salt Lake City residents enrolled in a youth program are eligible for CACFP benefits. Meals are currently available at all sites except the Fairpark site, which is expected to start serving meals later this month.

“We are pleased to announce the sponsorship of the Child Care Food Program in Salt Lake City. During this difficult time, many local children are having trouble accessing nutritious meals. Providing nutritious meals will have a positive, lasting impact on these children as it helps them develop healthy eating habits that will continue into adulthood,” said Kim Thomas, Salt Lake City’s Youth & Family Services Director.

The same meals will be made available to all eligible, enrolled children or adults at no separate charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination during meal service.

Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language, etc.), should contact the Agency (State or local) where they applied for benefits. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339. Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.
