July 7, 2022 – The nationwide waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provided free school meals to all students in the 2021-2022 school year ended on June 30, 2022.

Parents are highly encouraged to continue to submit their Free and Reduced Price Lunch Meal Benefits applications as information derived from the application directly impacts eligibility for other school programs, such as bus transportation and Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) food assistance.
PLEASE NOTE – As of 4/30/21, Hawaii’s food industry, including Sodexo, is currently experiencing shortages and non-deliveries as some food manufacturers have not been able to keep up with the increased demand as businesses around the country re-open. There may be little or no notice if our lunch entree offering must be adjusted due to an ingredient or item not being available or not arriving in time.
