This summer more than 71 Hawaii public schools are serving up free breakfast and lunch to keiki in select schools (breaking last year's record of 69). There are 40 schools participating on Oahu and 31 schools on the outer islands, "the department is excited to see an increase in the number of schools that have stepped up to feed our keiki this summer," said Dann Carlson, assistant superintendent, Office of School Facilities and Support Services, in a news release.

This service is free of charge to all keiki 18 years and younger. Children do not have to be enrolled in summer classes to be served. Select schools will be serving meals Monday through Friday, except for King Kamehameha Day and the fourth of July. Call ahead to your school to find out more spefici times for meal service.

Funding for this program is provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
