Nutrition Program

The Chaffey College Child Development Center participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and serves meals at no separate charge to all enrolled children. The reimbursement received from the CACFP helps with our food costs, and therefore, enables us to keep our fees for care as low as possible.

Please help us comply with the requirements of the USDAs CACFP. Please complete, sign, and return the attached Meal Benefit Form (MBF) to the center as soon as possible. However, you are not required to submit the MBF to participate in the program. All children enrolled in our center receive their meals at no separate charge, but the determination of eligibility category affects the amount of funding received by our center. This information is necessary to receive the reimbursement for the meals we serve to children in our program. If your first language is not English, you have a right to ask us for written or oral translation of these materials free of charge in your native language.

If your household currently receives benefits under the CalFresh Program (formerly Food Stamps), the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility for Kids (CalWORKs), or the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) you only need to list your current CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR case number on the MBF. You must also have an adult sign and date the MBF.

However, if your household does not receive benefits under CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR please complete the MBF and make sure you:

  • Provide the names of all household members and their income by source; and
  • Have an adult sign, date, and provide the last four digits of his or her social security number (SSN), or check the box Check here if no SSN if the adult does not have a SSN.

For All Households:

The USDA defines a household as a group of related or unrelated individuals (not residents of a boarding house or an institution) who are living as one economic unit (i.e., sharing living expenses). Therefore, the income reported on the MBF must include the gross income of all members of your household, by source.

The income you report must be the total gross income received last month, listed by source for each household member. If last month's income does not accurately reflect your circumstances, you may provide a projection of your monthly income. If no significant change has occurred, you may use last year's income as a basis to make this projection. If your household's income is equal to or less than the amounts indicated for your household's size on the attached Income Eligibility Guideline Chart, the center receives a higher level of reimbursement for meals served to your child(ren).

Once properly approved for free or reduced-price benefits, whether through income or proof of benefits as supported by a current CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR case number, your child(ren) will remain eligible for those benefits for 12 months.

Foster Children:

For households with foster children, please contact us for additional information.

Confidentiality of Information on the Meal Benefit Form:

We will use the information on the form to decide the level of reimbursement our center is eligible to receive. We will place the MBF in our food program files and keep the information confidential. Only upon your request will we share the information on your form with officials of other child nutrition, health, and education programs so they can use it to determine benefits for those programs.
