Fueling Up Afterschool

New Jersey has made great strides in serving afterschool suppers to more children, but we are still reaching just 5 percent of children who can benefit. The federal Child Care and Adult Food Program provides generous reimbursements to schools, community organizations and local government to serve snacks and suppers to children after school. Here are resources to help you bring afterschool meals to children in your community.
