About the Hawaii Food Bank
The Hawaii Foodbank is the only nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency in the state of Hawaii that collects, warehouses and distributes mass quantities of both perishable and nonperishable food to 200 charitable agencies on Oahu. It forms a vital link with food donors, charitable agencies and the hungry in Hawaii by collecting, inspecting, storing and distributing donated and purchased food. Last year the Hawaii Foodbank distributed over 12.4 million pounds of food, including nearly 4 million pounds of fresh produce. The Hawaii Foodbank has served the people of Hawaii for 31 years. Whether feeding the needy or distributing emergency food to survivors after Hurricane Iniki, the Hawaii Foodbank has been there to help rebuild lives and give hope for a better tomorrow.
