Continuing to expand its reach on the Garden Island, Hawaii Foodbank Kauai Branch has launched a new School Pantry at Kauai Community College (KCC). Located within the Waialeale Project on campus, the School Pantry offers KCC students a selection of snacks, ready-to-eat meals and non-perishable foods to take home.

“The idea of a School Pantry at KCC was brought to us by a current student, who has not only used our services over the last few years but has also noticed more students in need on campus,” said Wes Perreira, Hawaii Foodbank Kauai Branch Director. “It is well documented that well-nourished, food-secure students have higher rates of cognitive activity, school attendance and academic achievements, and we’re pleased to be able to help.”

For the School Pantry at KCC, Hawaii Foodbank Kauai Branch has provided two lockable storage cabinets, which it fills with a variety of food. A refrigerator will also be provided once space is made available.

The School Pantry at KCC is based on Hawaii Foodbank’s Food 4 Keiki Pantry Program, which serves as a critical food resource for students, their siblings and their families. Currently, Hawaii Foodbank Kauai Branch operates Food 4 Keiki School Pantries at five Department of Education schools on Kauai, including Eleele Elementary, Koloa Elementary, Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle, Kauai High, and Kilauea Elementary schools.
