The New York City Department of Education offers free breakfast, lunch and afterschool meals to all NYC public school students during the school year.
What’s on the Menu Today?
We create our menus and water services to make sure that students get the nutrients they need to think clearly and concentrate on learning. Seeing students succeed in school is what drives our passion to serve high-quality meals every day.
Use the Find A School tool to find the menu served at your school.

Daily Menu Options
In addition to the daily center of the plate meal option, students have access to multiple daily options as well. These include, but are not limited to, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, cheese sandwich, tuna sandwich, a hummus grab and go, and a chickpea wrap.
Under the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs, milk must be offered to students as part of the meal. OFNS provides low fat white milk, non-fat white milk, and non-fat chocolate milk. Schools that wish to eliminate chocolate milk as an option should communicate their request to the School Food Service Manager assigned to their school
Alternative Milk Options
Children who cannot consume milk due to a dairy allergy or lactose intolerance may receive a milk substitute (soy or lactose-free milk). Medical documentation is required for School Breakfast Program and National School Lunch Program. A parent’s written note is acceptable for Child & Adult Care Food Programs, which include After School Snack and Supper programs only.
Starting in Fall 2021, juice will no longer be offered on breakfast or lunch menus.
OFNS is consistently looking to utilize fresh fruit and produce based on the seasonality of the item. Please refer to the menu for featured fresh fruit and produce being offered.
