Hawaii Food Bank   

One in five of Hawaii’s residents needs emergency food assistance each year.


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 through over 200 charitable agencies on Oahu.

The Hawaii Foodbank 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 12.2 million pounds of food, including over 4.2 million pounds of fresh produce to help feed 287,000 people in need statewide.

The Hawaii Foodbank has served the people of Hawaii for 33 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.

“The people of Hawaii are one ohana. The Hawaii Foodbank provides food so that no one in our family goes hungry. We work to gather food and support from our communities. We then distribute food through charitable agencies to those in need. Our mission is from the heart, and we will fulfill our mission with integrity, humanity and aloha.”
