Hawai‘i Island Schools Offer Summer Meals
Beginning in early June, the SSO program will be available at public schools around the state free of charge to all children 18 years and under.
Meals will be served at select locations Monday through Friday, except June 10 and July 4. Keaukaha El will not be serving on Mondays.
Most schools will serve breakfast and lunch.
“Summer is a time that can be a gap period where some students miss out on meals,” said Dann Carlson, assistant superintendent of the Office of School Facilities and Support Services. “We are grateful that so many schools stepped forward this year to participate in the program and provide their students and other children the opportunity to receive meals.”

Call your school directly if the start and end dates for the program aren’t listed, and to find out the specific times for meal service.
SSO, funded by the US Department of Agriculture, was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals during the summer. An eligible school must have 50 percent or more of its regular enrolled students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches and some type of summer program on campus. However, meal recipients do not have to be enrolled in those classes to be served.
