Russell Child Development Center sponsors the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), providing food reimbursement and nutritional support to licensed childcare providers in 21 Southwest Kansas counties.
We are a non-profit organization federally funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE).
Our agency reimburses childcare providers for the meals and snacks served. Reimbursement rates are determined by Tier status.
Because CACFP participants’ nutritional needs are supported on a daily basis, the program plays a vital role in improving the quality of daycare and making childcare more affordable for families.
