WAILUKU >> Five Maui elementary schools and Molokai High and Intermediate School will be serving free breakfast and lunch to children 18 years and younger as part of the federally funded Seamless Summer Option program.
The Maui News reported Sunday that the meals will be served Monday to Friday, except June 12 and July 4.
According to a Department of Education news release, Hana, Kahului, Lihikai, Waihee and Wailuku elementary schools will participate in the meal program.
The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals during the summer.
An eligible school must have 50 percent or more of its regularly enrolled students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches and some type of summer program on campus.
