Foodbank food drive: results

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

By: Paolo DiGiovanni

The 24th annual Hawaii Foodbank food drive came to a close on Saturday, April 20.  Last year the Foodbank helped 183,500 people across the state with food donations. 

This year's results are in and Hawaii Foodbank has reached their goal of 1 million meals, with monetary donations and food still coming in from food drop sites.  Since January, the Foodbank has been campaigning to break their record and reach their goal for Hawaii's hungry. 

However, you can still help the Foodbank out.  Through the end of April, all of Oahu's fire stations will be accepting canned foods and other non-perishable items for the food drive.  You can also go to http://prz.us/HFBWalmart and vote to help the Hawaii Foodbank secure a $45,000 grant to buy food for the hungry.

Also, the Hawaii Bankers Association recently started their 6th annual food drive to support the Hawaii Foodbank.  Eleven banks and over 300 branches statewide will be collecting canned food, non-perishable items and monetary donations until May 31.
