In this matter, the Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) sought to terminate an institution’s participation in the federal Child and Adult Food Program (CAFP). This program reimburses approved entities that serve nutritious meals to people in their communities. Following a hearing, the judge agreed with DECAL that, despite being given multiple opportunities to improve its operations, the institution still failed to adequately maintain adequate financial records and used funds for “unallowable” items. Based on these findings, the judge affirmed DECAL’s decision to disqualify the institution from CAFP.
