Kapi‘olani CC helps to feed hungry keiki

Since 2015, Kapiʻolani Community College has been helping to feed hungry children at various Oʻahu sites as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program, which ensures children who qualify for free or reduced-price lunches have access to nutritious meals and snacks when school is not in session. During June and July, the Kapiʻolani CC culinary arts program prepared 20,000 meals for hungry keiki across Oʻahu.

When Hawaiʻi public schools closed in March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kapiʻolani CC sprang into action and started a spring feeding program, with the assistance of existing and new partners and generous donors.
