Community Care Connection: Hawaii Foodbank

Hawaii Foodbank  Mission: "The people of Hawaii are one Ohana. The Hawaii Foodbank provides food so that no one in our family goes hungry. We work to gather food and support from our communities. We then distribute food through charitable agencies to those in need. Our mission is from the heart, and we will fulfill our mission with integrity, humanity and aloha."

The Hawaii Foodbank forms a vital link with food donors, charitable agencies and the hungry in Hawaii by collecting, inspecting, storing and distributing donated and purchased food. Last year the Hawaii Foodbank distributed over 12.8 million pounds of food, including nearly 4 million pounds of fresh produce to help feed 183,500 different people in need statewide.

The Hawaii Foodbank has served the people of Hawaii for 30 years. Whether feeding the needy or distributing emergency food to survivors after Hurricane Iniki, the Hawaii Foodbank has been there to help rebuild lives and give hope for a better tomorrow.
