Families Can Complete the School Meals Application Online

Families can complete the beginning July 1. While families are not required to complete the application until school opens in the fall, please encourage families to complete the application online over the summer. This will reduce the number of paper forms your school needs to collect and it also allows the NYCDOE to process applications more quickly so that eligible students receive meal services as soon as possible. Note that families of students who are new to NYCDOE schools and who do not complete the application over the summer will need to pay full price for meals in September, until they complete an application to establish their eligibility for free meals. You may find it helpful to use the following resources to encourage families to complete the meals application online:
