All NYC public school students can enjoy free breakfast and lunch at school. You do not need to apply for your child to receive those meals.
However, we do ask families to complete a School Meals form so that schools can receive the right amount of funding for the program. Please complete the online form. We will also send a copy of the form home with your child, or you can get it from your school’s main office.
Spread the Word
Please join us in spreading the word that breakfast and lunch are free for all NYC public school students every day. We hope your child will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and come enjoy a healthy meal with us.
Download the SchoolFood App
View menus, submit reviews and even use to “FastPass” to skip the line. The app is available for Android and iOS.
If you have already added money to your MySchoolBucks account for your child’s lunches this year, or if you have a balance remaining from prior years, you will receive a full refund. Please email SFLunchRefunds@schools.nyc.gov to request a refund.
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.
