Charter and Non-Public Schools Food Service –

The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Food service is available for new Charter and Non-Public Schools.
If service is requested, the information below must be submitted on official school letterhead to NYCDOE OFNS. Prior to a decision being made to build, move, or renovate the premises contact Special Programs so we can assist in selecting the best service model for your school.
As a point of reference, review the PDF of the Kitchen Size Requirements based on your student enrollment. This will help scope the required space to allocate for proper service. Service is always based on projected enrollment at full capacity. These are the same requirements that OFNS has agreed to use for new DOE buildings and is adopted by the SCA. The total enrollment number will dictate the type of service to be provided.
The last day to apply for our services is June 30, 2023 for school year 2023-2024. Please keep in mind applying for service does not guarantee you are approved and may require you to apply for the following school year. All requests are reviewed and confirmed by the Special Programs Office.
Please contact your NYCDOE OFNS liaison before you finalize a layout for your kitchen.
