Supper Makes Cents for Sponsors

Serving supper through the CACFP At-risk Afterschool Meals Program makes good sense - and cents! If your organization services areas where at least half of the students are eligible for free or reduced price meals, you could provide students at those sites with a well-balanced meal after school and on weekends and holidays. This resource provides an overview of the program, its benefits, and how it can be financially sustainable in your organization. The resource also answers frequently asked questions like:

  • Can I still serve a supper if the afterschool program ends before the meal service?
  • Can I serve a snack as well as a supper?
  • I work with organizations that have weekend programs. Can I serve meals to those program?
  • What meal components do I need to serve for supper and snack through CACFP At-risk Afterschool Meals?
  • I don't have the capacity to prepare hot meals, or the programs don't have the capacity to hold and serve hot meals. Can I still serve suppers?
