School Breakfast and Lunch Menus
Due to extreme supply chain deficiencies and ongoing labor shortages with manufacturers and distributors across the country as a result of COVID-19, the Department of Food Service cannot guarantee menu items at this time.
Schools will be providing breakfast and lunch with the food items available at their building. Entrees have been reduced to one main entree and one alternative entrée to stretch food supplies and eliminate waste. Special menu items related to food allergies are limited but will be provided.
At this time, we are unable to predict when supply chain and labor shortages will return to normal. We appreciate your patience and will continue to update families as the situation changes.

All students eat for free!There are 56 public schools in the Pittsburgh district. Based on the schools' ability to cook food, store food, and receive food, the schools are broken into three categories: Central Kitchen, Site Kitchen, and Campus Kitchen.Early Childhood classrooms are found in several of our schools throughout the district. If your child is in an Early Childhood Program within Pittsburgh Public Schools, he/she will be eating from the Early Childhood menu that corresponds with their school type. For example, if the Early Childhood classroom is in Greenfield K-8, the child will be eating from the Early Childhood - Site Kitchen Menu because Greenfield is a Site Kitchen school.If your child attends an Early Childhood Center (Chartiers, Spring Garden, Children's Museum, or Crescent), he/she will be eating from the Early Childhood - Central Kitchen Menu.
