SchoolFood

The SchoolFood Lunch Program is designed to provide children and young adults with a healthy alternative to junk food. Lunch is available for all children under 19 years of age and all people with disabilities, regardless of age, who participate in special education programs.

Breakfast will be served during the Learn to Swim Program at select pools in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. 

Meals are free and provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) through SchoolFood, a part of the New York City Department of Education.
