Foodland Shoppers--Say "Kahuku High" 2/4-3/17
Participate in Foodland’s Shop for Higher Education 2015 scholarship program from February 4-March 17, 2015.

Shop for Higher Education will award (100) $2,000 college scholarships to deserving high school seniors across the state. Customers will be asked to support the school of their choice to help it earn scholarships. Once the program begins, customers will be asked to designate their points earned with their Maika'i card to support their favorite high school. The more points earned, the more scholarships a school will receive. We are committed to continuing our support of Hawaii's schools and students. Through this effort, we hope to make a positive impact on the lives of 100 college bound students in Hawaii.
