Assistance was provided through the University of Hawaii Foundation to support Kapiolani Community College’s preparation of emergency school meals. Funds specifically helped purchase local beef and “grab and go” food products from companies such as La Tour Café (another Ulupono partner) and Zippy’s. At times, the college prepared 1,000 school meals a day.

Our Partner

Kapiolani Community College has been helping to feed hungry children at various Oahu 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.
