The State Department of Education is offering Grab-and-Go Meals at a number of Big Island Schools, through July 17 (except for Waikoloa Elementary, which will only go through June 26).
Pickup times for breakfast are 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m., and for lunch, 11:30 until noon. However, according to DOE, three Big Island schools will offer lunch only — Hilo Union, Kealakehe High, and Waikoloa Elementary.
All children ages 18 and younger may receive one school breakfast and one lunch daily. Children do not have to be enrolled at the school distribution site and do not have to be public school students.
For special diet accommodations, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with as much detail as possible.
Parents may pick up student meals without their child(ren) present but must provide one of the following verification documents:
- Official letter or email from school listing child(ren) enrolled.
- Recent student report card(s).
- Attendance record(s) from parent portals of school websites.
- Birth certificate(s) of child(ren).
- Student ID card(s).
- Driver’s permit/license(s) for high school students.
- State-issued ID of the student.
Most sites will serve breakfast and lunch while others will offer lunch only (indicated in list below). Breakfast will be served from 7:30 to 8 a.m. and lunch from 11:30 a.m. to noon.
