Beginning in early June (2022), the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) program will serve meals at select schools Monday through Friday, excluding state holidays, to ensure that children continue to receive balanced nutrition during the summer break.
Beginning in early June the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) program will serve meals at select schools Monday through Friday, with the exception of June 10 (King Kamehameha Day) and July 4 (Independence Day). SSO is funded by the U.S.Department of Agriculture (USDA) and was established to ensure that children continue to receive nutritious meals during the summer.
“Good nutrition is vital to the health and development of our growing keiki and summer food service programs help to ensure that meals are available for all school-aged children during the summer break,” Superintendent Keith Hayashi said. “We encourage our parents to make these meals part of your child’s summer schedules to give them balanced and nutritious options. We thank our devoted cafeteria staff and administrators and our federal partners for making this program possible each year.”
Schools can opt to serve breakfast only, lunch only, or both meals. Parents should view serving locations and times below or call their nearest participating school directly for more details (VIEW AND SCROLL ORIGINAL POST).
Please note: Summer meals will no longer be offered in “Grab & Go” containers and will return to on-campus dining only, the standard format used prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Meal recipients do not have to be enrolled at a participating school to be served, and meals will consist of solid foods. For special diet accommodations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with as much detail as possible.
Schools eligible for the SSO program must have 50% or more of its regularly enrolled students qualified for free or reduced-price lunches and some type of summer program on campus.
