Hawaii Foodbank is a 501(c)3 organization and the only affiliate of Feeding America in the state of Hawaii. Hawaii Foodbank collects, warehouses and distributes mass quantities of both perishable and nonperishable food to nearly 200 member agencies on Oahu and Kauai. Hawaii Foodbank also partners with neighbor island food banks on the Big Island and Maui to provide hunger relief.
Hawaii Foodbank forms a vital link between food donors and food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, domestic abuse shelters and rehabilitation centers through feeding programs. In addition to food assistance, Hawaii Foodbank provides financial and educational support to its network of member agencies.
We will have TWO tents at the festival collecting food and canned food donations for the Hawaii Foodbank at our April 29 Street Festival.
