If a picture is worth a thousand words, what would a thousand pictures be worth?
That is the question that National Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Forum is asking! As a celebration for the birthday of the CACFP, they will be creating a mosaic birthday card on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. filled with pictures of the CACFP community.
This will not be possible without your help! Childcare providers and childcare organizations alike can participate in this momentous cause. Share your CACFP photos showing the amazing work your program is doing because of the CACFP. There are many photo opportunities and and ideas that your program can showcase and submit.
- Your program celebrating CACFP
- Photos with your congressperson
- Children enjoying the benefits of CACFP
- Parents learning because of CACFP
- Education through CACFP
- Monitoring visits

- Anything else that shows the important work you do.
You can submit your photo by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the #CACFP50 hashtag and make your post public. The deadline for photo submissions is April 14th, so start sharing your photos!
The CACFP is an integral part in thousands of childcare programs across the country. It allows childcare providers to provide healthy meals and snack to their children, promotes healthy eating, and educates childcare providers, children and parents on the importance of nutrition and living a healthy, active lifestyle. This program is necessary for so many children to grow up healthy and strong. So let’s give the CACFP the birthday celebration it deserves!
