WHAT’S COOKIN’ AT KMS? September breakfast and lunch menus
Mr. Abille and his staff have some delicious and nutritious meals planned.
SUPPORT KMS SCHOOL SERVICES STAFF – Buy school lunch
At the beginning of every school year, School Food Services Branch monitors our daily breakfast and lunch count for a one month period. This count determines the staffing level in our cafeteria. If the total number of meals served is low, we may lose some of our hard-working cafeteria ohana.
Please show our cafeteria staff your appreciation for the care that they put into every meal that they prepare and serve, by purchasing breakfast and lunch everyday in our cafeteria. The monitoring period has already begun and will end on September 15.
Mahalo for your support!
