Children do not need to show registration, documentation, or an ID to receive their meals.
Free lunch and breakfast will be handed out at hundreds of NYC public pools, parks and schools.
Where Children Under Age 18 Can Get a Free Summer Breakfast or LunchJust call 311 and ask where you can find free meals. Or text “nycmeals” to 877-877.
The operator will ask for an address or even an intersection, such as the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Avenue L. They will then give you a few places you can go.
The food, they promise, will be "delicious sandwiches, tasty salads, fresh fruit, cold milk."
It's for kids from infancy to age 18, regardless of income, school status, or whether they have ID. No papers are required.
HoursThe free lunch and breakfast are available every weekday:
Breakfast: 8:00 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.
Lunch: 11:00 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.
