The Hawaii Foodbank in partnership with the food industry and community serves as a link between charities and those in need of food assistance. Our drivers collect food from supermarkets, distributors and wholesalers and bring them to our warehouse for inspection and sorting. The screen food items are then available for distribution through nearly 200 charitable agencies on Oahu to feed our hungry.
The Hawaii Foodbank network serves the elderly, families, children and those facing financial crises each week. Hawaii's hungry are people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, ages and economic status.
Last year, the Hawaii Foodbank distributed over 14 million pounds of food in Oahu and Kauai. In addition, 3.8 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables were distributed through the Hawaii Foodbank's Ohana Produce Program.
The Hawaii Foodbank is a certified member of Feeding America and operates as the official food bank in the State of Hawaii. To distribute food to the neighbor islands, we work with three subsidiary organizations: The Food Basket on the Big Island of Hawaii, the Maui Community Food Bank, and the Hawaii Foodbank - Kauai Branch.
The Hawaii Foodbank collects and distributes many canned goods. However, we also offer perishable items such as milk and dairy products, eggs, beef, chicken and fish. All of these items are stored in our warehouse refrigerator and freezer units.
