Our Passion is to:
FeedingHawaiitogether.Org, has been the largest distributor of free food on Oahu since 2003.
Our services are designed to meet the needs of Honolulu’s working poor as well as the elderly and disabled living on fixed incomes. These are our “clients.” We distribute millions of pounds of canned and perishable goods every year, serving thousands of needy families. We also distribute, free of charge, furniture, appliances and other donated household items.
Living below the poverty line, many of our clients are forced to make difficult choices between purchasing food and paying for rent, utilities or critical medications. We know we are, in fact, preventing homeless through our efforts. Weekly trips to our ‘grocery store’ styled food pantry provides each client with dignity and hope.
In December 2016 Feeding Hawaii Together Org had to close its doors because the building on Keawe Street we were operating in was sold. For the year of 2017, we have been looking for a new location and that new location was found. We also have been applying for grants to purchase a new location so that our operations would never face an eviction so that our services would be available always. We applied for a Community Development Block Grant from the City of Honolulu and were approved. Right now we are fulfilling the details of such a purchase, detailing the new building to our needs, reassembling our equipment and plan to reopen in 2018 estimated in August.
This is exciting for us for we do know the great need that we fulfill and want so much to start again.
We are here to help those in need but so need to find monthly financial donors to help us to pay our monthly electric bill, trash pickup and other monthly expenses to run such a blessing to so many.
Be a blessing to so many by becoming a monthly donor to this great mission.
