One of the three child hunger programs under our Food 4 Keiki umbrella, the Backpack Program is a unique program that provides extra meals to sustain children from low-income households over the weekends. Students of Princess Victoria Kaiulani Elementary School and Linapuni Elementary School in Kalihi receive pre-assembled food packages every Friday during the school year. Food 4 Keiki is made possible by the support of donors that fund food purchases and volunteers that prepare and distribute packages that include assortments of snacks, ready-to-go-meals and beverages.Hawaii Foodbank distributed more than 20,000 food bags during the 2017-2018 school year.
