Nutrition Program

CAP partners with the Greater Albany Public School District in providing USDA Child Nutrition Program suppers to qualifying CAP sites.  Each afternoon, a USDA supper is provided to select CAP site locations by the Greater Albany Public School District.  Menus are prepared by GAPS and are approved by the USDA, an equal opportunity provider and employer.  CAP provides an afternoon snack to the remaining sites adhering to USDA guidelines.  In addition to serving a snack each afternoon, a morning snack is provided on non-school days including school vacation days, in-service days, and winter, spring and summer vacations. The USDA Supper Program and the CAP after school snack program gives children the nutritional boost they need to live, learn, play and grow.

Additionally, CAP is a peanut, tree nut, and seafood free program.  The number of children who have severe allergic reactions to nuts/peanuts and/or seafood has significantly risen over the past years.  This increase has influenced the way CAP provides after-school snacks and/or suppers.  CAP has established guidelines to accommodate children with mild to severe food and milk allergies.  Both CAP and USDA have mandatory forms required for children with all types of food and milk allergies.
