Free Breakfast and Lunch for Kids all Summer Long



School is out and free summer meals are in from June 28th to August 31, 2012. That's right; any child 18 years of age and under can enjoy a free healthy and great tasting breakfast and lunch at hundreds of schools, pools, parks, New York City Housing Authority complexes and other locations around the city.
No registration, documentation, or ID is required. Finding a summer meals site is easy. Use the search function on the Department of Education Website here, call 311 or text "NYCMeals" to 877-877 for information about the free breakfast and lunch summer meals program and to locate a convenient site near you.

SchoolFood will also be deploying three mobile food trucks this summer. In an effort to reach as many children as possible during the summer, mobile food trucks will visit beaches and parks throughout the city to hand out free delicious and nutritious lunches.

See more details at the DOE website here.
