Hawaii Foodbank is working to help in the emergency situations caused by the storms and other natural disasters on Oahu and Kauai.
On Kauai, in partnership with Walmart and Malama Kauai, we have already delivered 4 pallets of food and bottled water to Hanalei and Anahola areas and are preparing another delivery.
The best way to help with Kauai relief is with monetary donations noted for Kauai flood relief. If you are ON Kauai, non-perishable (ready to eat) food can be dropped off at our Hawaii Foodbank – Kauai Branch warehouse at 4241-A Hanahao Place in the Puhi Industrial Park, Lihue, HI 96766. If you are not residing in Kauai, please support flood relief efforts by making an online donation and designating your gift to "Kauai Disaster Relief" or "Disaster Relief" on the form.
Food and donations raised on Kauai will be used for Kauai emergency relief.
On Oahu, Hawaii Foodbank is working with our member agencies to ensure that the families and individuals in the affected area have food and water as they work to recover from the damage caused by the storm.
Angel Network Charities, run by Calvary by the Sea Lutheran Church in Aina Haina, is Hawaii Foodbank’s largest food distributing agency in East Oahu. We are working to support their recovery.
To assist with East Oahu emergency relief, monetary donations can be sent to Hawaii Foodbank at 2611 Kilihau Street, Honolulu, HI 96819.
The emergency situation emphasizes the importance of the work Hawaii Foodbank and its network of agencies does to ensure that no one in Hawaii goes hungry. It is the reason that food drive is so important to make sure that our food bank warehouses are stocked with sufficient food to immediately respond in an emergency situation. On Kauai, we delivered the first emergency supply of food and water on Sunday, while it was still raining.
