The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released a proposed rule on Friday, January 9, 2015, with new science-based nutrition standards for meals provided through USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).  The rule will provide older adults and adults in nonresidential daycare settings greater access to nutritious foods.  Adult day centers that participate in the CACFP are encouraged to provide feedback on the proposed changes.  Read the Proposed CACFP Rule

Those interested in reviewing the proposal and offering comments during the 90 day period are encouraged to do so once it is published at www.regulations.gov, a Web-based portal to make it easy for citizens to participate in the federal rulemaking process. All comments received will be considered carefully in finalizing the rule before it is implemented
