Every year, Foodland awards more than $200,000 in college scholarships to 100 Hawaii high school seniors through its Shop for Higher Education program. The annual statewide program runs during six weeks in February and March at all Foodland and Sack N Save stores. Since Shop for Higher Education began in 2006, more than 600 scholarships have been awarded to college-bound seniors across the state, totaling more than $1.2 million.
Shop for Higher Education replaces Foodland’s annual Shop for Better Education program which awarded computers and supplies to Hawaii’s schools for 17 years since 1988. The new program addresses the need for higher education funding in our community, and helps make a positive impact on the lives of college-bound students in Hawaii.
How It Works:
Customers are encouraged to select their favorite Hawaii high school among the list of participating schools when they check out at any Foodland, Sack N Save or Foodland Farms store.
Then, everytime they shop through the end of the program, they earn Maika`i Points for themselves and their designated school. The more Maika`i Points a school earns, the more scholarships it receives.
Scholarships are awarded based on the number of Maika`i Points schools earn in the program: The top 5 schools earning the most points receive (5) $2,000 scholarships each; the next 10 schools earning the most points receive (3) $2,000 scholarships each; the next 10 schools receive (2) $2,000 scholarships each; the next 25 schools receive (1) $2,000 scholarships each.
A total of one hundred $2,000 scholarships are given to deserving high school seniors across the state each year.
Foodland Super Market, Ltd., Hawaii's largest, locally owned, and operated grocery retailer, was founded by the late Maurice J. "Sully" Sullivan in 1948. Sully had a great vision - that of a family-run, community-focused company that put customers first. Today, with 32 stores and more than 2,500 employees, his vision is still very much alive. Through our responsiveness, innovation and service, we strive to deliver outstanding shopping experiences for our customers while working to build a better Hawaii. We firmly believe that our community benefits from having a strong, local supermarket. And we are committed to being a leader in serving Hawaii's shoppers.
At Foodland, Sully's heartfelt philosophy continues to be preserved, honored and nurtured:
--"Treat our customers well and they will come back."
