Meals

Lunch Applications & Eligibility:

The federal government mandates all New York City families with children attending a public school complete and submit only one form for all registered students attending the same school. The form determines a student’s eligibility for free lunch. All public school households must conform to this statutory and regulatory federal requirement. Failure to do so may result in the loss of millions of dollars to the Department of Education in the school meals programs and in other federal programs as well. Children are determined to be eligible for free meals through these programs based upon

(1) a computer match with public assistance/food stamp files; or

(2) household income provided by parent or guardian on SD1041 form; or

(3) valid public assistance/food stamp case number provided by the parent or guardian, or

(4) valid direct certification letter.

Eligibility may be determined based on the computer matching process OR household income as provided by the parent/guardian OR based on a valid Food Stamp or ADC/TANF case number as provided by the  arent/guardian OR valid direct certification letter. The free and reduced price school lunch applications are available online by logging on to
