As Maui grapples with the effects of its worst wildfires in over a century, the School Nutrition Association stands in solidarity with the resilient people of Maui, Hawaii, including our SNA members. They are focused on rebuilding while still providing important services to students and the greater community.
Together, the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation (PSHF) and the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) are working tirelessly to support affected school communities, including addressing the vital aspect of school nutrition.
Right now, the most urgent need is monetary donations to aid ongoing response efforts, ensuring that students have access to nutritious meals during this challenging time. To facilitate this, all monetary donations received by PSHF through October 1, 2023, will be designated solely for Maui public schools affected by the wildfire disaster.
