After School Snack Program


The hours after school are a critical time when children and youth are most at-risk of engaging in delinquent behavior. An afterschool care program that serves snacks reimbursed through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) offers children and youth constructive activities and something to eat. It draws them into supervised afterschool care programs that are safe, fun and filled with learning opportunities. Afterschool snacks fill the gap between the lunch they receive at school and supper, and helps ensure that children and youth receive the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow.



If your school wants to serve and be reimbursed for a more adequate after school snack/meal, view the CACFP at-risk supper program.
