Help raise one million meals for the hungry during the Hawaii Foodbank's 26th Annual food drive

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Hawaii Foodbank and Food Drive sponsors First Hawaiian Bank, Hawaii News Now, KSSK and the Honolulu Star-Advertiser will be in communities across the state collecting dollars and food for the Hawaii Foodbank 26th Annual Food Drive.

The goal: to raise food and dollars to provide One Million Meals to feed the hungry in Hawaii.

The Hawaii Foodbank and its network of over 200 agencies helps feed 1 in 5 people statewide each year including over 47,894 children and over 46,000 elderly. On Hawaii island, 1 in 4 children live in households that may not know where their next meal is coming from.

You can lend your support by going to a food drive collection site in your neighborhood on Saturday, April 18 and donate some of the top most needed foods: canned meats, meals (spaghetti, beef stew, corned beef), fruits, vegetables and rice.

Monetary donations also provide food for the needy. Your $10 donation will help the Hawaii Foodbank distribute food for 25 meals to the needy.

Volunteers are still needed at all sites from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please donate your time at a collection site near you or by visiting the Hawaii Foodbank website to register online or email volunteer@hawaiifoodbank.org for an application.
