Child Nutrition Programs Extended: The Child Nutrition programs, including the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and WIC, recently received a one month extension through October 31. The programs were set to expire at the end of September. The programs may soon be extended further through the Agriculture Appropriations bill. The Agriculture Appropriations Conference Report, which has yet to be voted on by the House and Senate, would extend funding for these programs through September 30, 2011. The programs are due for reauthorization this year.
