Nourish Our ‘Ohana
Your support on Food Drive Day makes it possible to help provide food for more than half a million meals.
Our thoughts are with our Maui ‘ohana and everyone impacted by the devastating wildfires. Together with our extraordinary community, this year’s Food Drive campaign raised more than $300,000 and gathered 43,000 pounds of food and supplies for the Maui Relief Fund — making it possible to provide food more than half a million meals toward Maui relief efforts.
To every volunteer, sponsor, partner and supporter — mahalo for coming together to help nourish our ‘ohana on Maui, both today and in the long recovery ahead. With your help, Hawai‘i Foodbank is committed to providing them support while continuing to meet the nutritional needs of the 1 in 6 Hawai‘i residents struggling with hunger daily.

Hawai‘i Foodbank's Flagship Fundraising Event
Food Drive Day is Hawai‘i Foodbank’s largest and most highly-anticipated community engagement event. Food Drive Day raises awareness about hunger in Hawai‘i and rallies support around Hawai‘i Foodbank’s mission to nourish our ‘ohana today and end hunger tomorrow. Thank you to everyone who joined us this year.
Celebrating 40 Years of Nourishing Our ‘Ohana
Hawai‘i Foodbank has been working to nourish our ‘ohana for 40 years now. But what exactly does that mean? Nourishing our ‘ohana isn’t just about filling plates. When you feed someone, you’re also sharing aloha, extending dignity and providing hope for a better tomorrow.
And that better tomorrow starts with increasing access to safe and nutritious food today. Health and hunger are deeply connected, and Hawai‘i Foodbank is committed to being the healthy option for those experiencing hunger.
When we nourish our ‘ohana today, we can end hunger tomorrow.
History of Food Drive Day
History of Food Drive Day
Ensuring there is always enough food to feed our communities is an ongoing challenge, and we are constantly exploring creative ways to match supply with demand. That's how Food Drive Day was born. Thirty years ago, Hawai‘i Foodbank launched the inaugural Food Drive Day at Restaurant Row to help gather more food for Hawai‘i’s hungry. The community embraced our humble event and it ultimately grew into the highly anticipated, annual fundraising effort it is today.
Over the past three decades, Food Drive Day has grown to unite businesses, organizations, groups and individuals all over Hawai‘i in one common cause – nourish our ‘ohana. Food Drive Day now holds collection sites all over Hawai‘i, as well as fosters more than a dozen unique Food Drive Coalitions. These Coalitions consist of companies and organizations within the same industry, and they work together to gather food and raise funds on behalf of Hawai‘i Foodbank in the months leading up to Food Drive Day.
