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.

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.

Download the School Food App

The app is available for Android and iOS. You can use the app to view menus and submit reviews.

School Cafeteria and Kitchen Inspections

All school cafeteria health inspections are scheduled and performed by NYC Health Department.

NYC laws requires a minimum of 2 inspections in a school building, each school year. Inspections are unannounced, therefore, the Department of Education, including the kitchen staff, will not know when the cafeteria will be inspected.

The data is refreshed on the first of each month and when an inspection occurs the inspection date will be posted below. Inspection data will be available for the past 36 months.
