2014 Summer Meals Program

JUNE 27 – AUGUST 29, 2014

Breakfast and lunch continues beyond the scheduled instructional school year. Our Summer Meals Program is available at hundreds of public schools, community pool centers, New York City Housing Authority complexes, and other locations around the city. No registration, documentation, or ID is required to receive a free breakfast or lunch meal to all children 18 years old and under.

We have 4 mobile food truck locations offering meals seven days a week throughout the summer. They are stationed at locations frequented by children when school is out. These sites are Orchard Beach in the Bronx, Main Street Library in Flushing Queens, Flushing Meadow Park Zoo parking lot @ 111 Street, and a new fourth truck coming soon to Roosevelt Avenue in Corona. Please use the search feature above for the days and types of service for each truck.

Remember from June 27th to August 29th school is out but free summer meals are in!

Use the search feature  at the NYC DOE School Foods website to find a location near you or text "NYCMeals" to 877-877*.
