It's not "bananas" to hope fresh local bananas are served to our keiki.
Department of Education is continuing its Aina Pono Harvest of the Month program, serving locally grown bananas in public schools.
Last month, they served locally grown beef.
Local farms like Sugarland Growers and Ohana are providing 34,000 pounds of bananas.
The Food Services branch of the DOE doesn't want to serve them raw. Instead, every school's cafeteria will either offer banana pie or banana crumble for at least one day.
