HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Some 71 schools statewide will provide free meals to students this summer.

"This is typically a period of time where our most vulnerable students do not have access to services that they normally would during the school year,” said Dann Carlson, assistant superintendent at the state Department of Education, in a news release.

“Our hope is that more students will enjoy a free meal, simply by stopping by one of our participating schools.”

As part of the program, free meals will be served to all kids 18 and under. Parents are encouraged to call ahead to get the specific times at a participating school for meal service.
