Child and Adult Care Food Programs (CACFP) – Centers – Site-Level Contact and Program Participation – Program Year 2020-2021

<b><a href=https://form.jotform.com/212794867706167 target="_blank">Help us provide the most useful data by completing our ODP User Feedback Survey for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Data</a></b><p>

<b>About the Dataset</b><br>

This dataset contains contact and program participation information for all Texas child and adult care centers approved by the Texas Department of Agriculture to operate as a meal site under the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) during the 2020-2021 program year. CACFP centers include Adult Day Care Centers (ADC), Child Care Centers (CCC), At-Risk Afterschool Centers (At-Risk), Head Start Centers, emergency shelters, and centers providing care for students outside school hours.</b> Sites can participate in one or more CACFP sub-programs. The CACFP program year begins October 1 and ends September 30.<p>

In March 2020, USDA began allowing flexibility in nutrition assistance program policy to support continued meal access should the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) impact meal service operation. For more information on the waivers implemented for this purpose, please visit our website at <a href=http://www.SquareMeals.org target="_blank">SquareMeals.org</a>. <p>

This dataset only includes information for CACFP centers. <b>For data on Texas Day Care Homes (DCH) participating in CACFP, please refer to the “Child and Adult Care Food Programs (CACFP) – Day Care Homes – Contact and Program Participation” dataset, also on the State of Texas Open Data Portal.</b><p>
