SUMMER MEALS: Free breakfast & lunch
Breakfast and lunch continues beyond the scheduled instructional school year. Our Summer Meals Program is available at hundreds of public schools, community pool centers, New York City Housing Authority complexes, and other locations around the city. No registration, documentation, or ID is required to receive a free breakfast or lunch meal.
In an effort to reach as many children as possible during the summer, SchoolFood deploys four mobile food trucks which visit beaches, parks, and playgrounds throughout the city to handout free, delicious, and nutritious lunches to all children 18 years old and under.
Summer menus continue to reflect our commitment to the highest standard of nutrition while offering fresh and appetizing foods.
Feed Hungry Children: Serve meals at your site
The easiest way to serve summer meals at your location is to receive high-quality breakfast and lunch meals from the Office of SchoolFood, NYC Department of Education.
To receive meals, organizations must be an accredited nonprofit, fill out an application, have adequate refrigeration on site, pass an inspection conducted by the Office of SchoolFood, and have one person on staff during meal service that currently holds a NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene food handling certificate.
