Hawaii Bankers Association accepts donations for Foodbank drive

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Those who would like to drop off food or monetary donations to banks supporting the Hawaii Foodbank have until Friday to do so.  Nearly 300 bank branches across the state will be accepting donations through the Hawaii Bankers Association's seventh annual Foodbank drive.

"The Foodbank donates some 13 million pounds of food to families throughout Hawaii every year," said Edward Y. W. Pei, executive director of the Hawaii Bankers Association. "They feed about 183,000 people. But unfortunately that's not enough because one in five children every day still wonder whether they're going to have a next meal."

The Hawaii Foodbank is primarily seeking non-perishable foods including meats or tuna, rice, soups, vegetables and fruits. Those who wish to make monetary donations can speak to any teller at any branch.

The Hawaii Foodbank is the only nonprofit agency in Hawaii that collects, warehouses and distributes mass quantities of both perishable and non-perishable food to 250 member agencies as well as food banks on the Big Island, Maui and Kauai. A $10 donation enables the foodbank to distribute food for 25 meals. 

All HBA members are participating in this year's food drive include:

  • American Savings Bank
  • Bank of Hawaii
  • Bank of the Orient
  • Central Pacific Bank
  • Finance Factors
  • First Hawaiian Bank
  • Hawaii National Bank
  • HomeStreet Bank
  • Ohana Pacific Bank
  • Pacific Rim Bank
  • Territorial Savings Bank
