Teapresso Pop Up for Hunger Free Tasting

Location: Library Lanai

The Teapresso Bar is coming soon to UH Hilo!

Beginning Wednesday, March 27, the UH Hilo campus community can get their boba tea or organic lemonade fix at the new Teapresso pop up beverage concession located at the Library Lanai on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Teapresso’s rotating beverage menu includes Teapresso’s Signature Milk Tea, Honeydew Milk Tea, Taro Milk Tea, Tropic Osmanthus, Fruity Lychee, Rose Green Tea, Strawberry Lilikoʻi Lemonade, Blue Hawaiian Lemonade, and Maunakea Sunset Lemonade. Add-ons include large boba, lychee jelly or strawberry bursting boba.

Teapresso is the first beverage concession participating in UH Hilo’s “Pop Up for Hunger” program to support HALE PAʻI ʻAI, UH Hilo’s new food pantry program. The HALE PAʻI ʻAI soft opening is planned for mid-April, 2019 through the end of the semester. Administrative Affairs will operate and manage the food pantry program to serve and support any UH Hilo student without reliable access to food. The process to receive HALE PA‘I ‘AI services is simple, and the program is set up to protect the anonymity of students with food insecurities. We welcome and encourage any UH Hilo student in need with a valid student ID to participate in this program.

The food pantry’s name, “HALE PAʻI ʻAI” eloquently describes UH Hilo’s mission to provide “a place to receive an offering of food”. Although HALE PAʻI ʻAI is not intended to supply all food a student needs for the week, it will provide supplemental food for any UH Hilo student in need of this type of support. Additional information will be provided prior to the soft opening in April.

To kick off this program, Interim Chancellor, Marcia Sakai, and Interim Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs, Kalei Rapoza cordially invites the entire UH Hilo campus community to the Pop Up for Hunger Tasting Event on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 from 11:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Library Lanai. Stop by for a complimentary Teapresso beverage, and learn more about UH Hilo’s Pop Up for Hunger program, and the HALE PA‘I ‘AI food pantry program to combat food insecurities at UH Hilo.
