DOE Announces Summer Food Service Program Sites

HONOLULU – The Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) is announcing its locations for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Beginning in early June, the SFSP will be available at 59 public schools without charge to all children 18 years and under. Meals will be served at select locations Monday through Friday (except June 10, 11, 28 and July 4).

The SFSP is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. 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, but meal recipients do not have to be enrolled in those programs. Since meal location, service dates and times vary, a list is provided here along with the schools’ phone numbers.

“It’s our honor and privilege to continue serving families during the summer with nutritious meals that meet federal guidelines,” says Ray L’Heureux, assistant superintendent for school facilities and support services.

The Seamless Summer Program is an equal opportunity provider. For more information, log onto www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/summer.

In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. To file a complaint of discrimination, write USDA, Director, Office of Civil Rights, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C. 20250-9410 or call (800) 795- 3272 or (202) 720-6382 (TTY). USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
