Shop for Higher Education 2018

Foodland founder, the late Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan, was much more than a brilliant businessman.  He was an outstanding community leader too.  Sully’s philosophy of giving back to the community has touched thousands of individuals throughout Hawaii, especially Hawaii’s youth.  So, as we launch our 13th annual Shop for Higher Education scholarship program, we are excited about its mission in helping Hawaii’s students achieve their dreams of attending college and reaching their career goals. 

Past scholarship recipients have shared with us their diversified career goals such as becoming emergency medical technicians, educators, artists, government officials, nurses and even astronauts!  Many of these careers can only be attained with a college education.  Without financial aid resources like Foodland’s Shop for Higher Education, many would not be able to afford the high price of college.

That’s where Foodland’s customers come in.  Just shop at Foodland using your Maika’i card and designate your favorite participating high school when you checkout now through March 30. Your designated school will receive the same number of Maika'i points that you earn for your grocery purchases.  And the more points a school earns, the more scholarships it may receive!  You can also help your favorite high school earn more points by purchasing specially marked items – just look for the bright 2x, 3x and 5x bonus point shelf signs.

We encourage you to designate your favorite participating high school and support Hawaii’s deserving high school seniors.  It only takes a moment, and there’s no cost to participate.  So, remember, shop now through March 30, and you won’t just grocery shop … you’ll Shop for Higher Education!
