person handing food to a senior
The Hawaii Foodbank holds food drives for seniors.

This year’s University of Hawaiʻi Foodbank drive has ended, but UH faculty and staff continue to show their generosity. UH’s contributions now total $89,871.22 and 6,227 pounds of food. This beats last year’s total of $74,690.

The donated food and money help to fight food insecurity for Hawaiʻi families in crisis.

Although the UH campaign has ended, it’s not too late to donate to this year’s campaign. You can still make an online donation at the UH Hawaii Foodbank website. The top five most wanted items are financial contributions, canned meats/tuna, canned meals, canned vegetables or fruits, and rice.
