Schools offer free meals

The Hawaii State Department of Education announced 63 public schools will serve meals through its summer food service program, “Seamless Summer Option.”

SSO will be available at public schools around the state free of charge to all children 18 years and under.

Kapaa Elementary, Kekaha Elementary and Koloa Elementary are the three schools participating on Kauai.

“Economically disadvantaged students often come to school hungry and rely on programs like the Department’s Free and Reduced Price Lunch, which is why we continue to offer support during the summer months that would otherwise be a gap period,” said Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi.

To be eligible, a school has to have 50 percent or more of its regular enrolled students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.
