Food Service / Lunch Applications, Payment Portal & Guides

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING UNIVERSAL

FREE BREAKFAST & LUNCH

 

For the entirety of the 2021-2022 School Year, the Hoboken Board of Education will be participating in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) as part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the FFCRA).  The SSO program allows Hoboken to continue providing a universal free breakfast and lunch to ALL DISTRICT STUDENTS, regardless of income eligibility. 

 

Please note that while the district is able to provide free meals to all students, it is still important to submit a Free and Reduced Price Meal Application.  Schools operating SSO may still process these applications for child nutrition purposes that include establishing P-EBT eligibility, SY 2022-2023 30-day carryover status, state funding, and other school benefits.

 

We encourage you to complete an application to see if you qualify for additional benefits.
