The Upward Bound Program at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College is participating in the Summer Food Service Program. Program organizers say meals will be provided to all eligible children enrolled in the Upward Bound six-week Summer Academy free of charge.

To be eligible to receive free meals at a residential or non-residential camp, children must meet the income guidelines for reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program. Students must also be fully enrolled in the Upward Bound program for this site only.

Children who are part of households that receive foods stamps, or benefits under the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families are automatically eligible to receive free meals at open sites on Maui.

The public is invited to call (808) 587-3600 for information on open sites.

Program administrators say acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
