The New York City Department of Education (DOE) is pleased to announce that breakfast and lunch are completely free for all students in every New York City public school.

We need your help to make this program a success. Parents, may be asked by their child’s school to complete a Family Income Inquiry Form so that our schools get access to federal funding. Please complete the form online at by December 29, 2018. A paper form may also be sent home and is available at your school’s main office.

If you have already added money to your MySchoolBucks account for your child’s lunches this year, or if you have a balance remaining from prior years, you are eligible for a refund. Please email with your questions.

Join us in spreading the word that breakfast and lunch are free for all students every day. I hope your child will take advantage of this wonderful new opportunity and come enjoy a healthy meal with us.
