Equitable Access for All
We believe that consistent, equitable access to safe and healthy food is a fundamental human right.
Nourishing our ‘ohana goes far beyond putting food on the table. We must nourish one another with compassion, respect, dignity and aloha. Hawaiʻi Foodbank is committed to embracing every member of our ‘ohana – no matter the circumstances. We will continue to work diligently to eliminate the stigma surrounding hunger in our communities. There is no shame in receiving food because everyone deserves a seat at the table.
