Meeting a need to feed, 11 Na Koa board members and UH alumni are donating their own money to pay for post-practice snacks for the Warriors this spring training.
It costs between $750 and $800 to provide snacks after each practice. Ten donors paid up to $800 apiece; one donor paid about $1,500 for two snack sessions. Those donations cover the 11 practices following UH’s spring break. Na Koa will pay for snacks following the April 28 spring game.
UH also provides supplementary meals (what used to be known as training table) for the players each day there is an on-field practice during spring training.
In total, the players are fed twice a day — snacks in the morning, meal in the evening — on each day there is a spring practice.
