Meal Reimbursement

Cash reimbursement for serving meals to enrolled children and adults that meet Federal nutritional guidelines and meal pattern varies according to age and types of meal served. Centers and day care homes may be approved to claim up to two reimbursable meals (breakfast, lunch or supper) and one snack, or two snacks and one meal, to each eligible participant, each day.  Afterschool care programs may claim reimbursement for serving each child one snack, each day.

Reimbursement for centers is computed by claiming percentages, blended per meal rates, or actual meal count by type (breakfast, lunch, supper, or supplement) and eligibility category (free, reduced price, and paid).  Bright from the Start assigns a method of reimbursement for centers, based on meals times rates, or the lesser of meals times rates versus actual documented costs.

Program payments for day care homes are based on the number of meals served to enrolled children, multiplied by the appropriate reimbursement rate for each breakfast, lunch, supper, or supplement they are approved to serve. Community Childcare Food Supplement, Inc.  also receives administrative funds related to the documented costs they incur in planning, organizing, and managing CACFP.
