Hawai‘i Appleseed is committed to a more socially just Hawai‘i, where everyone can have economic security and reach their full potential. The School Breakfast Program is available to low-income keiki for free or at very reduced prices, but less than half of them are taking advantage of this opportunity.
Hawai‘i Appleseed is working with school district leadership, principals, school nurses, teachers, parents, and other stakeholders to find ways to improve school breakfast participation across the state.
We have been funded by Hunger Is in the past. This has allowed us to build relationships with key stakeholders and pilot school breakfast expansion programs in a few schools in the state.
