Helpful Tools & Resources for Partner Agencies

Our mission is simple and direct: “To help the hungry in Maui County by collecting and distributing food through community partnerships.”

More than 130 partner agencies from faith-based and community service organizations have full access to all the resources at the Maui Food Bank. These agencies provide direct service to the needy by distributing food through pantries, serving meals at soup kitchens, shelters, homeless drop-in centers and mobile outreach programs.

Become a Partner Agency

To become a member agency you must be a 501(c)(3) organization and the scope of the organization or church mission must include a reference to helping the needy.

If your nonprofit organization is interested in becoming a Partner Agency of the Maui Food Bank, please contact Charity “Tita” Hartman, Agency Director, at Tita@MauiFoodBank.org.
