Since the beginning of the pandemic, Hawaii Foodbank Kauai has distributed 1,710,706 pounds of food to Kauai families.

Now, the Foodbank says its Kauai warehouse currently has about an eight-day supply of food. 

“While our inventory is not ideal, we are not in danger of not responding to the community’s needs,” said Wes Perreira, Hawaii Foodbank Kauai Director. “That said, we could use a boost of food donations from those who may have the resources to donate during the holiday season.”
