CACFP Workgroups
2018/2019 CACFP Input Workgroup  Minimize 
Please help congratulate and welcome the 2018/2019 CACFP Input Workgroup members. The members on the committee have been challenged with the task to provide insight on issues that are impacting all areas of CACFP on a state-wide level.

Committee members will serve as liaisons for CACFP sponsors and contracting entities while addressing those issues with TDA during the workgroup meetings. Throughout the next year, members will actively participate in the development sub-committees. Subcommittee members of the strategic focus areas will be announced in the "Insights" e-newsletter. For suggestions on a particular issue, please address a subcommittee member.

Committee members and TDA are excited about the partnership opportunity to ensure growth and success of the CACFP Program in Texas!
