Ohana Produce Plus Program

What is Ohana Produce Plus Program?

For over 20 years, Hawaii Foodbank and participating food partner agencies have distributed millions of pounds of fresh produce and assorted dry goods and nonperishable items to underserved communities on Oahu and Kauai through the Ohana Produce Plus Program. Recipients of this program include families with low income, individuals with disabilities, the homeless and working poor. For many people, Ohana Produce Program is their only source of fresh fruits and vegetables.

In 2017, Hawaii Foodbank worked with 28 food partner agencies to distribute over 2.5 million pounds of fresh produce and nearly 4.8 million pounds of baked goods, dairy products, eggs, cereal, snack foods and beverages.
