IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM SCHOOL FOODS
As you may know, NYC has Free School Lunch for All in our Public Schools. As a result, it is no longer necessary for families to maintain a MySchoolBucks lunch money account for their students and we will be refunding all families with remaining balances. If you have a remaining balance for your student’s MySchoolBucks account, the DOE will refund you. A check will be mailed to the parent or guardian at the home address on file for the student. Please contact the main office by December 15, 2017 if your address changed since you last registered to make sure it is correct (changing on the Blue Card does not change the address in the DOE system). If you have any questions, please send an email to: SFLunchRefunds@schools.nyc.gov.
