A Different Kind of Resolution

3 different kinds of resolutions you can make in 2022 that will help nourish our ‘ohana

Resolutions that give back allow us to do better while helping our community be better.

Each new year, people all over Hawai‘i are filled with a newfound optimism in their ability to do better. We see it every January and February – we make resolutions centered around things like losing weight, kicking old habits and taking up new hobbies.

Now that the first couple weeks of 2022 are over, we’ve had some time to consider our resolutions with all the good intentions of the new year. No doubt, the typical resolutions of weight loss and healthy eating are great forms of self-improvement. They are full of merit, and it is important for us to take care of our own personal well-being.

However, perhaps this year we can also incorporate resolutions that give back to our community as a whole. Here are three different kinds of resolutions you can make this year that will help nourish our ‘ohana.

1. Teach Our Keiki about Giving Back

Involve the keiki in your plans to give back. Organize a community food drive, spend the morning volunteering at our warehouse, or even read them the classic tale of Stone Soup – there are many age-appropriate ways to introduce children of all ages to the concept of kōkua. 

Resolution: I will volunteer at a Hawaii Foodbank opportunity this year that my whole family can attend!

2. Share Social Media Posts

A big part of our mission involves keeping our community up-to-date on things like food distributions, volunteer opportunities and emergency preparedness. Tag, like, retweet, share, follow – just one click or tap can go a long way in helping our hungry ‘ohana.

Resolution: I will follow Hawaii Foodbank on social media and share content to show what I stand for!

3. Join the Fight Hunger Hui

For many of our donors, recurring gifts are a practical and convenient way to give back. These gifts allow us to focus our resources more on programs and less on raising necessary funds. Just $10 can make a big difference – helping to provide food for more than 20 meals.

Resolution: I will make my donation a recurring one by joining the Fight Hunger Hui!
