Weekend events help Hawaii Foodbank

Hawaii Foodbank

The Hawaii Foodbank says more and more people are seeking help.

The organization says it has only seven days of food in its warehouse.

The foodbank has multiple events this weekend to help fill the empty shelves.

“There are an increasing number of people who need emergency food assistance in our communities. Not just the homeless but a lot of working families, low income individuals, single parents, even the disabled and the under employed,” Hawaii Foodbank Grants and Communications Manager said.

The Hawaii Bankers Association is also accepting food and monetary donations through May 30th. For details, click here.

Mail carriers will also be collecting donations on Saturday, May 10.

Donations will also be accepted at the Hawaii Pet Expo on May 10 and May 11 at the 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Neil Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.
