School Meals

The New York City Department of Education offers free breakfast, lunch and afterschool meals to all NYC public school students during the school year.

Meals are provided at no cost to our parents through federal funds. If you choose to send in lunch with your child, please contact the school administrator for protocols. If your child has food allergies, please advise your teacher immediately and indicate it on the blue card.

You do not need to apply for your child to receive meals. However, we do ask families to complete Family Income Inquiry Form(Open external link), which helps schools receive money for their programs.

 

Your school will send a copy of this form home with your child, or you can get it from your school’s main office.

We take allergies, food safety, and student health very seriously.

Please visit our page on allergies to learn more about how we ensure that your child receives the best care possible while at school.
