The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), which is managed locally by the Delaware Department of Education. Sponsors in CACFP can receive reimbursement for meals served in compliance with program regulations at qualifying child care centers, adult day care centers, emergency shelters, family day care homes and afterschool programs. Sponsors may be reimbursed for up to two meals and one snack per participant each day. Participant eligibility is tied to income eligibility guidelines that are adjusted annually by the USDA. The current eligibility guidelines are as follows:
