SFACA participates in The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) through the NY DOE. The program could save your family more than $250 per year for each of your children while providing your child with nutritious and delicious meals. The program provides free and reduced-price school lunches to those whose household income is within certain guidelines. All SFACA families must complete a lunch application form or apply online for the program at nyc.applyforlunch.com.
For the 2016-2017 school year, the price for lunch is as follows:
- Codes 3, 4, 5 are required to pay $1.75 per lunch
- Codes A, 1, 2 are free
