Our Commitment to Nutrition

At Hahaione Elementary, we believe that a nutritious meal is the foundation of a productive school day. Our school lunch program is designed to meet the nutritional standards set by both the Hawaii Department of Education and federal guidelines. We focus on offering a variety of food options that are both appealing and beneficial for growing children.

What’s on the Menu?

Our menu features a diverse range of meals to ensure that every student finds something they enjoy while getting the nutrients they need. We incorporate fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and dairy into our daily offerings. Menus are planned with student preferences and seasonal availability in mind, ensuring that meals are fresh and enticing.

Special Dietary Needs

We recognize that some students have specific dietary requirements due to allergies, sensitivities, or personal preferences. Hahaione Elementary is dedicated to accommodating these needs to the best of our ability. Parents are encouraged to contact our school nutrition manager to discuss any special accommodations their child may need.

Meal Programs and Eligibility

Hahaione Elementary participates in the National School Lunch Program, which allows us to offer free or reduced-price meals to eligible students. We encourage families to apply for this benefit if they meet the eligibility criteria. Applications are confidential and can be submitted at any time during the school year.
