The Pa'ia Youth & Cultural Center gratefully acknowledges continued support from the Kent & Polli Smith Family Fund of the Hawai'i Community Foundation. The contribution is used to support the Pa'ia Bay Cafe life-skills program, which offers daily cooking classes. The classes educate participants about meal preparation and nutrition. During our last program year, 120 youth participated regularly in the program. During that year, more than 2,500 meals were served to children, many of whom would not have eaten during the day if it weren't for the cafe program.
