Senator Hirono Expresses Support for Local Products in Public School Lunches in Visit to Mililani High School

Lt. Governor Doug Chin and U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono visit Mililani High School to support the Aina Pono Hawaii State Farm to School Program.

“The Aina Pono Farm-to-School Initiative and Harvest of the Month programs connect Hawaii’s agriculture community with our schools to supply our keiki with nutritious, locally grown school lunches,” Senator Hirono said. “The Mililani High School students I met with today are excited about their school lunch program, and I look forward to seeing these programs expand to schools across the state.”

“U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono has long supported and promoted local agriculture and sustainability programs,” Lieutenant Governor Chin said. “It’s no surprise that she sees the value in the Aina Pono Hawaii State Farm to School Program.  After meeting with the students and staff of Mililani High School today, she saw how the students have become ambassadors of this excellent program, and more importantly, why the Aina Pono program should be expanded throughout our state.”
