Parents Still Need to Submit the School Meals Form to Help with Federal Funding


School lunch may be free this year for all students in NYC public school, but the Department of Education wants to remind you that parents, regardless of income, must still complete a School Meals Form so that our schools get access to federal funding for this program and others. To complete your application, simply go to and fill out the application.

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 will receive a full refund. Simply email with your questions.

Also, families can download the SchoolFood app, where you can access the monthly menus as well as leave reviews on meals!
