Local Companies to Donate to Hawaii Foodbank for every UH Football Victory


In September, Landmark Logistics Corporation announced it will donate $1,000 to Hawaii Foodbank for every game won by the University of Hawaii Football team this season. Landmark Logistics Corporation has committed to donating a minimum of $10,000, regardless of team performance, and is inviting local businesses to join the charge.

“We are huge supporters of UH football regardless of wins and losses, but this season could be a special one for Hawaii Foodbank thanks to Landmark Logistics Corporation, and a handful of other local businesses,” said Ron Mizutani, President and CEO of Hawaii Foodbank.

President and Executive Chairman Corey Correa reached out to other Hawaii business leaders to join the campaign and Pasha Hawaii, MIRA Image Construction, Mama Manoa, Kawika's Painting Inc. and Defend Hawaii immediately responded with different levels of commitment with every victory achieved by UH’s Rainbow Warriors.

With the current hurricane season underway and the damages caused by Tropical Storm Olivia and Hurricane Lane, Hawaii Foodbank is in need of food and monetary donations to aid victims of these natural disasters and to continue to meet the daily needs of Hawaii’s hungry residents.

"The Hawaii Foodbank really needs the community’s help right now and we as business leaders can make a difference in feeding Hawaii’s hungry,” said Correa. “My goal is to get as many local businesses across the state on board to participate with Landmark Logistics on this donation campaign. Whatever number a company can commit, $1.00 or $1,000 a win, helps.”

Don’t be surprised if cheers from local businesses are a little louder than usual as the as the Rainbow Warriors take on opponents this season.

“We are grateful for Corey’s initiative and we thank Pasha Hawaii, MIRA Image Construction, Mama Manoa, Kawika's Painting Inc., and Defend Hawaii for joining the campaign,” said Mizutani. “We hope as the Rainbow Warriors continue to win, other businesses will join us on this exciting ride. Each Hawaii victory will go a long way in helping us serve our mission of feeding Hawaii’s hungry.”


September is Hunger Action Month


This September, Hawaii Foodbank, together with the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, will mobilize across all 50 states in an effort to bring an end to hunger. Hunger Action Month is designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of the fact that 41 million Americans, including nearly 13 million children, are food insecure, according to the USDA.

In Hawaii, one in five islanders struggle with hunger and may not know where they’ll find their next meal. That number includes nearly 48,000 keiki and more than 46,000 kupuna who may not have enough to eat.

This year the campaign will focus on the strong connections between hunger and health. The Hunger Action Month 2018 campaign asks people to consider how it must feel to live with an empty stomach, which puts a healthy life and a promising future at risk.

Consider what you couldn’t do without adequate nutrition by writing on an empty plate, “On an empty stomach I can’t ______,” and filling in the blank with something you couldn’t achieve without the nutrition we need to thrive.

Please share your photos on social media with #HungerActionMonth, @HawaiiFoodbank and @FeedingAmerica to join the conversation.
