NondiscriminationPolicy

Equal Access for All

Hawaiʻi Foodbank is rooted in the ideal that the people of Hawaiʻi are one ‘ohana, and our mission is to provide food so that no one in our family goes hungry.

At the same time, we firmly believe that 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.
