Give it Fresh Today
BIG MAHALO to the vendors and shoppers at the Honolulu Farmer's Market. Every Wednesday fresh produce and food is donated to the GIFT (Give It Fresh Today) table. Aloha Harvest picks up these donations and delivers it free of charge to one of our social service agencies the same evening.

BIG MAHALO to Debbie Millikan and the students and 'ohana of 'Iolani School for collecting 400 pounds of fresh produce at their Empty Bowl event for Aloha Harvest. Mahalo for fighting hunger one bowl at a time!
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 1.2 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.
