Hundreds of volunteers make a difference for the Hawaii Foodbank

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Firemen, students, Kentucky Fried Chicken employees, even the mayor were just a few of the two thousand volunteers that came out to support the Hawaii Foodbank for its 22nd annual Food Drive on Saturday, April 16th.

The Honolulu Police Department donated an estimated seven thousand pounds of food and around twenty six hundred dollars in cash.

Many local businesses also participated by contributing truckloads of food in addition to money.

This years' food drive featured several new events, such as the "Zumba Hunger Flash Mob." There was also entertainment to support the volunteers who were collecting donations throughout the day in the hot sun.
