Due Today! Comments on the CACFP Meal Pattern


4.15.2015 There is still time to comment on the proposed rule to update the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) meal pattern! Comments must be submitted by 8:59 PM (Pacific Time) TONIGHT – April 15th.


To make it easy for you to comment, CFPA has developed two different sample letters that can be personalized and submitted to USDA.

The "simple" sample letter is brief and intended for the general public to use as a template for their comments. The "long" sample letter is more detailed and intended for organizations. Both sample letters contain instructions on how to comment.

Whether or not you directly administer the program, CFPA is strongly encouraging all those invested in child care and early childhood to comment of the impact of the proposed changes.
