Their message: prioritizing youth, kupuna, and their families.

Pomaika’i Lyman, a volunteer with the Kaimuki Youth food supply distributions said, “During a time when sports are on hold, these high school athletes have found a way to train and develop their spirits and their character by staying connected to each other and their school in service to the community.”

The group began hosting food drives at Palolo District Park, then migrated to Saint Louis Alumni Clubhouse and now give out meals to community members at Kaimukī High. 

The operation is led by Kaimukī Football Head Coach David Tautofi who has partnered with local businesses and other non-profit organizations to continue feeding the community.
