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.Download Flyer (Double-Sided) Register Your Site
