At-Risk CACFP (Child and Adult Care Food Program) is a USDA federally funded program that offers evening meals to qualified campuses.

The At-Risk component of CACFP is intended to:

  • Provide a safe place for school-aged children to go after school
  • Incorporate educational and enriching activities
  • Minimize the risk of those children becoming involved in counterproductive and potentially dangerous activities
  • Provide an afterschool supper meal as an added benefit

A campus qualifies for the At-Risk CACFP if they meet the following requirements:

  • At least 50% of the campus's enrollment is eligible for free or reduced-price school meals
  • The after school program offers some kind of enrichment or educational component to the students.

If a campus meets all the necessary qualifications to have an At-Risk CACFP Program, the School Principal should contact the Nutrition and Food Services Office at 512-414-0251.
