School Meals

Students attending school in person will be offered free breakfast and lunch daily in school. Please contact your school for more information on meal times and locations.

Approved Grab and Go Meals 

Grab and Go Meals will be available for DOE students on an approved medical accommodation or who are required to quarantine. Meals will be available for pick-up by a non-quarantined family member at their school. Speak to your school administrators for details.

Hot Meals Service for Schools

A school may request hot meal service for all students attending in person on school days. Principals can speak with the School Food Service Manager about how to request service. Social-distancing guidelines and locations to eat must be in place before starting. Parents/guardians may reach out to the school administration for more information.

Halal Meal Service Request 

Halal options are available at every school. Expanded Halal menu/service is available upon request. Parents/guardians may reach out to the school administration regarding expanded Halal meal service for your school community. 

Kosher Meal Service Request

Kosher school meals may be available upon request and with prior registration. Parents/guardians may reach out to the school administration regarding Kosher meal service for your child. 

Support School Funding

You do not need to apply for your child to receive meals. However, we do ask families to complete Family Income Inquiry Form, 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.
