Bringing kosher food

You can make your own meals and bring them frozen or you can buy in some areas ready made double sealed travel meals. Food that is in a deep-freeze will remain frozen upon arrival in Hawaii.

Call your hotel beforehand to arrange for an extra fridge and to place extra food in their freezers.

Hotels can heat up double-wrapped food for varying fees. Or bring along your own burner or buy a cheap toaster oven or grill on the island to do it yourself. Costco carries sternos to help cook and warm your food.
