Last Week for Annual Hawaii Foodbank Food Drive

This yearʻs drive for the Hawaii Foodbank ends this Friday, April 29. We do not have much time so letʻs get to losing.

Rules in Biggest Loser Format (Let’s give away those lbs.!!! Lose that weight!!!)

1. Each team starts with a robust 40lbs/FTE (The winning rate in years past).
2. For every lb. /FTE you donate, your team will lose weight for 40lbs/FTE.
3. The team with the skinniest “figure” will win!

Food will be weighed and money will be counted as lbs. The rate will be $1=1lb, and 1lb.=1lb., as in one dollar donated will equal one pound off of your team weight. Weight will be calculated per FTE. Actual total weight will be divided by the # of FTE in your unit.

We are pleased to announce prizes of:

  • $100 COSTCO to the division or unit that is the largest donor overall/unit FTE.
  • $50 COSTCO to the division or unit who provides the most money/unit FTE.
  • Complimentary lunch for 2 at the Pearl for the single largest individual donor (lunch contingent on availability-not eligible for buffet week).
