“We are confident that Mr. Scott will help fulfill the forum’s mission to protect the CACFP, to perfect the policies that govern it and to promote CACFP leadership,” stated Chris Clark, forum board member.

Scott will make his debut in his new position in Washington, D.C., in March at the CACFP Leadership and Anti-Hunger Policy Conference.

Cover 3 Foundation was founded in 2009. By covering three essential goals, the Reach, Teach and Feed initiative affects thousands of children every day.

“This program affords kids who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn about nutrition, self-confidence and making good choices in their lives,” Scott stated. Scott also manages all programs within the Foundation, including C3’s Kid’s Meals, a CACFP and Summer Food Service Program for the Virginia Department of Health and United States Department of Agriculture.

“Kids need to eat year-round, not just during the school year,” Scott said.

The National CACFP Forum is dedicated to the ideal of high-quality nutrition services for all children in child care settings. The Forum was organized in 1983 and has been recognized in Washington as the leading National CACFP public policy organization.
