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.

Take-out Meals for Remote Learning Students

Students attending schools remotely or their parents/guardians may pick up a free breakfast and lunch at most DOE school buildings. Take-out meals for students will be available on school days only from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Visit the take-out meals page to find a take-out meal location near you.

Community Meals

The New York City Department of Education is committed to making free meals available daily for all New Yorkers. Any New Yorker can receive free meals at more than 200 locations across the city. Please visit the community meals page for more information. 

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.

Allergies

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.
