ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY is teaming up with area restaurants to “Plate It Forward”. Our local restaurants and cafes need community support during these challenging times, and "Plate It Forward" encourages diners to support these eateries while also helping to support IPA and feed Hawaiʻi's hungry.

“Plate It Forward” will help bring awareness to restaurants in our community and encourage people to support these businesses. And, in turn, these businesses will help support ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY and help feed Hawaiʻi's hungry. On a designated night for each participating restaurant, whether you dine-in or dine-out (following state and local directives to keep our community safe), we, along with our restaurant partners, benefit from your participation.

Enjoy a great meal, support our local businesses, and make a difference! “Plate It Forward” because we are all in this TOGETHER!
