Hunger touches everyone.
It's been over a year since our lives were turned upside down. We've been hit hard, with food insecurity increasing locally by 50 percent. Here's a hard fact: Over a quarter of a million Hawaii residents, including more than 89,000 keiki, struggle with hunger.
Last year, Leeward's ‘ohana stepped up and donated $8,279 and 547 pounds of food. This effort helped support the Hawaii Foodbank's distribution of over 18 million pounds of food. This year, we're setting the bar higher and reaching for $10K!
