Hawaii Food Bank Needs Your Help

Are you wondering what you can do to help those in need? Consider donating to the Hawaii Food Bank. The Food Bank’s mission is to nourish, support, and sustain our ‘ohana in need. Now, more than ever, Hawaii’s people are facing food insecurity. With schools and businesses not fully open, many are homebound, out of work, and in need. Those who are isolated and elderly are especially hard hit.

Donations are Critical

The Hawaii Food Bank exists to ensure that everyone can have safe access to the food they need. But, the Food Bank needs your help. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has forced the Hawaii Food Bank to adjust its operations and programs. Since March, they’ve purchased more than $4.75 million worth of emergency food. Their typical annual budget for food purchase is $400,000. As such, donations from the community are critical to further their mission and to help the hungry.

Cherie, The Hawaii Association of Realtors Charitable Foundation is doing a month long food drive benefiting all of the food banks in the state starting Sept. 1. The Foundation will be placing food containers all over the state primarily at Escrow companies. In June , the Foundation donated $50,000 to all of the statewide food banks. Think about donating right now via Cherie’s link and for sure look out for our Food Drive announcement coming up next week with a video customized for each island showing the donation locations and also directions on how to donate virtually to your own island food bank. As a trustee of the Foundation, my job is to pickup and deliver food donations on Maui. This is critically important right now that the $600 a week supplemental unemployment payments are not being receiving by those who need them most to feed their families.
