SUBJECT: Letter to Day Care Home Providers

Enclosed is a camera ready copy of a letter signed by Under Secretary Shirley Watkins, for day care home providers who are participating in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). This letter was developed to convey a consistent message to all day care home providers of the benefits and responsibilities of participating in the CACFP, including the importance of complying with Program requirements.

As a sponsoring organization of day care homes, please ensure that every provider who is currently participating in CACFP receives a copy of this letter. Letters should also be distributed to new day care home providers as they enter the Program.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. If you have questions, please call me at (919) 715-1926.
