Kona Pacific Public Charter School, along with program volunteers, will once again serve lunch to children up to 18 years old all summer long through the Summer Food Service Program.

Kona Pacific Public Charter School, the Hawai‘i Island leader in school and community nutrition programs, is participating in the 2019 Summer Food Service Program, with the assistance of volunteers.

This program is Hawai‘i’s first and only mobile summer lunch program, and has served more than 32,000 lunches since 2015, the first year of the program.

The summer lunch program is also sponsored by the Hawai‘i Office of Child Nutrition Programs and the Walmart Foundation.

Many community partners have stepped up to help fight childhood hunger over the summer of 2019. These Summer Food Service partners include the management of Jack Hall, Kaimalino, La‘ilani, Kamakani, Ulu Wini, Lokahi Ka‘u and Kahalu‘u affordable apartments in Kailua-Kona, the youth program managers of Keauhou and Keōua Hōnaunau canoe clubs, and the summer program coordinators at Ho‘okena School.
