Sponsors can receive reimbursement for meals served at qualifying child care centers, adult day care centers, emergency shelters, family day care homes and afterschool programs as part of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).  The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates CACFP, which is managed locally by the Delaware Department of Education. 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 USDA.  The current eligibility guidelines are as follows:
