HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The next time you grocery shop, you can help feed those less fortunate.

Thursday, Kraft Foods made a $5,000 contribution to the Hawaii Foodbank's annual "checkout hunger" campaign.

You can help too, by making a donation at the check stand in Safeway, Times, Don Quijote, Tamura's Market and Kokua Market.

The goal this year is $200,000.

"Do I think we can make it? Yes," said Hawaii Foodbank president Dick Grimm. "And the reason I do is because the people of Hawaii are so giving that they never forget those who are disadvantaged and they always come to the forefront are always giving more and giving more and giving more. And that is just a blessing that we have."

A $16 donation could feed a family of four for a week. Last year, "Checkout Hunger" raised $189,000 for the Hawaii Foodbank.
