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 screened food items are then available for distribution through more than 200 charitable agencies on Oahu and Kauai.
Last year, Hawaii Foodbank received more than 12.5 million pounds of food in Oahu and Kauai. This fiscal year total included 3 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Hawaii Foodbank's network of food partner agencies serve the elderly, families, children and people who financially struggle to make ends meet. Hawaii's hungry are people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, ages and economic status.
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 The Food Basket on Hawaii Island, Maui Food Bank and Hawaii Foodbank Kauai Branch.
Hawaii Foodbank collects and distributes many canned goods. However, we also offer perishable items such as fresh fruits/vegetables, dairy, eggs, beef, chicken and fish. All of these items are stored in our warehouse refrigerator and freezer units.
