Maui Family Support Services, Inc. received $ 11,000 in grants to feed children during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

From January 15 to December 15, 2021, MFSS will implement a weekend backpack food program for children signed up for Early Head Start.

This program provides families with healthy meals for their children on weekends and holidays to ensure they return to school ready to study, and helps their families make ends meet during this difficult time.

The program will provide at least 100 backpacks for children each month.

MFSS will follow the USDA Food Pyramid in implementing the program. “With many families having lost jobs or wages in the past few months, more children than ever are relying on the meals they get at school,” said MFSS.


No Kid Hungry aims to end childhood hunger by helping start and improve programs that provide children with the healthy nutrition they need to thrive. No Kid Hungry is a campaign by Share Our Strength, an organization that works to fight hunger and poverty.


MFSS is a private, not-for-profit agency founded in 1980 to provide early childhood development services to families on Maui. The agency has served Maui county residents for more than 40 years. MFSS’s mission is to promote healthy family functioning by providing supportive services that build on family strengths and use our collective resources to prevent child abuse and neglect.
