Meals for 2021 – 2022

Dear AMS Parents,

The Department of Education is pleased to announce that all students at Hawaiʻi’s 257 public schools statewide will receive free breakfast and lunch meals for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year, thanks to a nationwide waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Students will only receive meals at their school of enrollment. One meal per breakfast session and one per lunch session will be free of charge. Additional meals or meal items taken at the same session will be charged a normal rate.

Parents are highly encouraged to continue to submit their Free and Reduced Price Lunch Meal Benefits applications online using the EZMealApp mobile app or at EZMealApp.com, where applicable. Information derived from the applications directly impacts other school programs, such as bus transportation and Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) food assistance.

You can find more details about the Meal Card System on our Cafeteria page.
