Holiday Meals

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and most of us look forward to sharing a bountiful meal with family and friends. Unfortunately, many of our Maui County neighbors may not have enough food to feed their families. We’re asking our island Ohana to sponsor a full holiday meal, including a turkey or ham, and all the trimmings, for a family in need—all it takes is a 25-dollar donation! Donate a Holiday Meal to feed a family in need!

Why We Help

A recent study commissioned by the Hawaii State Department of Health reveals that people living in Maui County are at serious risk for having one of the highest rates of food insecurity in the state. Of those who benefit from the Maui food Bank—65% have an income below the official poverty guidelines, 37% are working households. Almost 50% of the people we serve are single moms and one in five children in Maui County is currently at risk of going hungry. This is a 62% increase in the last decade.

Hunger affects low-income families and individuals, as well as people who live in extreme poverty. People who suffer from hunger are confronted with constant shame, worry and insecurity about how they are going to feed themselves and their families. Hunger impairs a child’s ability to learn, grow and stay healthy. Among the elderly, it exacerbates chronic health problems and speeds the onset of degenerative diseases. In every age group hunger impedes people from having healthy and productive lives.
