IMPORTANT: Help needed to qualify for free meal program

Hawaii public schools are offering a food program to provide free meals to all students at select campuses that meet specific qualification standards. The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is participating in a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) program to allow all students at those schools to receive free meal service. The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) allows a school district, a group of schools or a single school with high concentrations of economically disadvantaged families to serve free meals to everyone even if they do not qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch reimbursement.
