Where you Grad?
Here in Hawaii it’s so common for locals to ask each other, “Where did you go to high school?” or, “Where you grad?” Well, whatever Hawaii high school is your alma mater, you can help them earn college scholarships for their seniors! Foodland’s Shop for Higher Education is one of my favorite community programs because together with the help of our customers and vendors, 100+ high school seniors can pursue their dreams of furthering their education.
If you haven’t already designated a participating Hawaii high school at checkout, this is your reminder to hurry and do so because Shop for Higher Education ends on March 29! Just tell your cashier what Hawaii high school you want to support. It’s as easy as that! After designating a school, the Maika`i points you earn by shopping through March 29 will be given to you as well as your designated school. The more points the school earns, the more scholarships it receives!
Foodland will award at least 100 students each $2,000 scholarships to attend the university or 4-year college of their choice. Since we started this program 6 years ago, more than $1.5 million in scholarships has been awarded! Click here to learn more!

Have you ever been so busy that you missed a meal because you didn’t have the time to eat? Surely it happens to all of us occasionally, but once we realize it, we hardly give it a second thought because we know we can eat almost whenever we please - some families in our communities don't always have that luxury.
We are truly amazed by the generosity of our customers. Despite tough economic conditions for many, our customers always rally for a good cause, and especially when it comes to caring for the extended family of island residents.
