HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Nearly 300 participants made the mile-long trek around the Frank F. Fasi Civic Center Saturday morning to raise funds for Foodbank agencies across Oahu.

Hunger Walk officials say the goal of the event was to raise $100 thousand dollars and by Friday $90 thousand dollars were collected.

Saturday’s fundraising efforts made up the deficit.

Foodbank officials add that they are “fairly confident” that the event helped the organization exceed its fundraising goal.

Monies collected will benefit Hawaii Foodbank member agencies like Oahu food pantries, feeding programs, homeless shelters, rehabilitation centers and soup kitchens.
