Give Aloha Happening Now!
78185 is Aloha Harvest
Aloha Harvest is participating in Foodland's annual Give Aloha program again. All month long in September, Maika`i customers are invited to make a donation of up to $249 (per person, per organization) at checkout to their favorite non-profit organization. Foodland matches a portion of each donation. There are tons of great organizations here in Hawai`i, we humbly ask that you keep Aloha Harvest in mind this year. Give the cashier our number - 78185.

Trick of Eat Food Drive
We are teaming up with Meal Exchange to put a new spin on Halloween again this year. Trick or Eat is a fun and easy way to raise awareness about food insecurity, connect with your community and help to feed those who are less fortunate. We're encouraging schools, clubs and businesses to host their own Trick or Eat Food Drive. Sign up your group here by FRI SEPT 30. The group that collects the most food (by weight) wins a Papa John's pizza party! For more info call our office or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Party 4 A Purpose
BIG MAHALO to everyone who attended Party 4 A Purpose in support of Aloha Harvest and Epilepsy Foundation. Thank you to all the sponsors, silent auction and food donors for making this event possible. The results of the fundraiser are still pending. A special thanks to the Honolulu Professional Foundation for selecting Aloha Harvest as a beneficiary of this fundraiser! We are humbled to share that HPF raised $22,000 for Aloha Harvest!
There is NO liability when given to a non-profit because protection is provided through the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Act. So far this year, Aloha Harvest has rescued over 1.5 million pounds of food so far. See how you can be part of the solution, here.
It takes money to keep Aloha Harvest running, getting food from where there is extra to where it is needed. Every dollar helps. Make a donation by mailing a check, calling the office or by clicking here.
Aloha Harvest is operated by a small qualified group and extra hands are always needed. Get a chance to ride along on our trucks or help in the office and at our special events. Turn in an application for the next volunteer opportunity.
