CACFP Parent/Guardian Application
This form is completed ONLY on child care children. This determines if we are reimbursed at the free, reduced, or paid rate for their meal (all Head Start/Early Head Start children are automatically reimbursed at the free rate). The directions on how to complete the application are below. It is filed in the child's individual file and copies are sent to central office.
Point of Service Meal Tallies
Point of Service meal tallies MUST BE COMPLETED WITHIN 15 MINUTES OF SERVING THE FOOD. The meal tally records which children were present for the meal. As long as the child was in attendance for the meal and we offered them a complete meal then they are present. It does NOT mean that the child chose to eat the food, it just means that we offered the food and gave them the opportunity to eat. Below is a completed example of a Point of Service Meal Tally. The Meal Tally form and the Absentee Reasons Code Sheet can be found on the Center Director Resource sub-tab under the Central Office tab.
Menu Feedback Form
The purpose of this form is to provide useful feedback on the menu, recipes, & food service. This form can be completed as often as needed by staff (daily, weekly, monthly, annually, etc). It is to be sent to the Food Service Coordinator when complete.
