What's on the Menu
Kosher certified meals are available at select sites. These sites are listed below and can also be found in the Community Meals look up tool.
Kosher meals follow the USDA meal nutrition guidelines and are produced in partnership with a certified kosher distributor. Our kosher meal sites are housed in DOE school buildings and staffed by DOE food service staff. Meals offered at our kosher meal sites are free and available to any New Yorker that requests them.
