    The Hawai’i Food Bank

    We signed up to help at the Food Bank in April but needed to cancel due to the pandemic. The Food Bank needs help in two ways.

    First, you can participate in a virtual food drive instead of community food drive in order to practice social distancing. You can find out more information about virtual food drives on their website HERE.

    If individuals would like to volunteer in person, contact to receive an application form.
