Food drive theme to be 'hungry for change'

Advertiser Staff

The theme of the Hawaii Food Bank’s 12th annual food drive will be: "We’re hungry for change. Are you?"

The Food Bank, the only institution in Hawaii that collects, warehouses and distributes food to 238 agencies that assist hungry people across the state, is planning for the annual drive.

The basic structure of the drive itself will include few changes.

Food donations will be accepted Saturday, April 14, at drop-off sites across the island, including Restaurant Row, Windward City Shopping Center, Koko Marina Center, Pearl City Shopping Center, Villages of Kapolei, Waianae Mall Shopping Center and various military locations.

Businesses, government agencies and individual volunteers are gearing up to help the Food Bank with donations and services.

What the Food Bank hopes to change are the lives of families who often have to make such choices as deciding between paying the rent and feeding the children.

With this goal in mind, the Food Bank hopes to collect 525,000 pounds of food and $275,000 during its April drive.

Donations of canned tuna, meat, spaghetti, chili and corned beef hash, as well as canned soups, vegetables, beans and pork and beans, will be especially appreciated.

More information on how to best assist the food bank this year can be obtained by calling 836-3600, or by visiting its Web site at
