Visit www.nyc.gov/accessnyc to apply for School Meals online. Families only need to submit one application online for all their children, even if their children attend different types of schools (public, private or charter).
Complete the application online in any of the seven languages on ACCESS NYC - English, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Korean, Haitian Creole or Arabic.
The paper application is still available and families who prefer that method, or would like to apply in a language not available on ACCESS NYC (for example Bengali, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Hindi, Polish or Urdu) can obtain the application from their child's school.
If families have any questions about the application, they can send an email to OSCompliance@schools.nyc.gov or call the Office of SchoolFood Help Desk at (718) 707-4400.
