Nourish our ‘ohana.

We have come a long way during this pandemic but 1 in 6 of our local residents still struggle with food insecurity. This alarming number includes our kupuna and more than 81,000 keiki.

Last year, UH employees raised more than $90,000 (which provided food for 204,374 meals). This effort helped support the Hawaii Foodbank's distribution of over 18 million pounds of food. Let us do even more this year, and give to those who need it most.
