Maui Food Bank is Maui County’s primary safety net for hunger relief, providing safe and nutritious food to anyone in Maui County who is at risk of going hungry.
Following the fires, Maui Food Bank sprang into immediate action. Between August 9 and August 31, we distributed 548,367 pounds of food and remain committed to providing ongoing food assistance to those in need.
The Food Bank works with partner organizations throughout Maui County, including food pantries, churches, non-profits, soup kitchens, and various community-based groups. This cooperative network strategy enables the Food Bank to effectively run comprehensive and efficient food distribution programs that serve the entire community.
The vast majority of our partner agencies are fully operational, with many of them extending their distribution hours to accommodate the growing demand across Maui. The map displays the existing food distribution sites, and we are actively engaged in expanding our distribution locations, including those on the west side.
Maui Food Bank has joined forces with Hawai‘i Foodbank on O‘ahu and Feeding America to deliver essential food supplies to Maui. Our island community is on a challenging journey towards recovery, and we want to express our sincere gratitude to the countless generous contributors who are making it possible for us to continue this vital mission, both now and in the days to come.
