In RE
Termination of CACFP
Appellant
Catherine Miller
Appellee
Polk County Community, Family & Youth Services
Summary

Appellant Catherine Miller filed an appeal from a determination that her day care home is seriously deficient, a proposed termination of her agreement to participate in the CACFP, and a proposed disqualification from future CACFP participation.

CACFP is a federal program that provides reimbursement for meals and snacks provided by providers to children in day care homes and centers. The program is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through the Department's Bureau of Nutrition and Health Services.

On August 30, 2019, the Department of Human Services notified the Department that it was recommending that Miller's day care home registration be revoked for the following reasons: Health and Safety Concerns, Unauthorized Resident in Home, Conduct or Conditions that Threaten the Health or Safety of the Children in Care, and Circumstances related to non-performance of the Sponsor-Provider Agreement.

A national disqualified list is maintained by the USDA of institutions and day care homes disqualified from participation in the program. Miller's day care home and Miller's name must be included on the national disqualified list pursuant to this decision.

The Child and Adult Care Food Program participation between Catherine Miller and Community, Family & Youth Services is hereby terminated. The day care home shall be placed on the national disqualified list.
