​All students who attend Department of Education schools are entitled to FREE breakfast and lunch. A lunch form, however, is required to be filled out from each family, this determines our funding for Title I.

On the School Meals page on the Department of Education website, you can find the monthly lunch and breakfast menus. PS 65 serves the Pre-K-8 lunch menu. You can also sign up for the SchoolFood app, read the Food Allergy Policy, and find the nutritional value of each meal item, including calorie count.  

If you should have any questions, please call Mrs. Lisa Barretta t. 718.981.5034 ext. 1151.
