Free Meals for All

Free breakfast and lunch is available for all students.

  • Breakfast is eaten in the classrooms

  • Pre-K eats lunch in the classroom

  • K-5 eat lunch in the cafeteria

PS 56 also participates in the DOE’s Alternative Lunch Menu program with help from Wellness in the Schools. The Alternative Menu offers more food cooked from scratch, plant-based, and fewer processed food items than the classic menu. Visit the DOE’s lunch site for updated menus. You can find them under “Pre-K – 8 Breakfast” and  “Pre-K – 8 Alternative Lunch”.

For more information about school breakfast and lunches, please visit the DOE School meals page.​
