Free Summer Meals Program


Starting June 27 and through August 30, free summer meals will be available to all children and teens ages 18 years and younger at locations throughout New York City from 8:00– 9:15 a.m. for breakfast and 11:00 a.m.–1:15 p.m. for lunch (times are subject to change). No registration, documentation, or ID is required.  Please note there is no service on Independence Day, July 4.  


To support your outreach to families about this program, a Summer Meals Toolkithas been created to access resources including flyers that can be backpacked, social media images, and social media text available to post (available in all DOE languages). These resources have free summer meals program details printed on them, which serve as a guide to families wishing to participate in the Free Summer Meals program.
