Disaster Relief


Can I do a food drive to help?
We have had an overwhelming response, and we are tremendously grateful. We would like to encourage monetary donations at this time. Things are changing so quickly, and direct funding allows us to be responsive and flexible in meeting immediate needs.
What food items do you need?
Needs are changing quickly. We will update our website frequently as we learn about the immediate needs from our partners and community.
Can you pick up food?

Our warehouse is at capacity with the significant amount of food coming, and our drivers are on the road delivering. If you have a small amount of food please drop off at one of our drop off locations.

Where can I drop off food?
Maui Food Bank at 760 Kolu Street in Kahului accepts donations Monday- Friday, 7am – 3pm.
Are you taking non-food items?

Right now we are accepting priority items of diapers (baby and adult) and personal hygiene items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, etc. Please do not send clothing and bedding, our island has enough of those items right now. Hawaii state VOAD is coordinating offers for generators.

Can I volunteer?

Interested volunteers can fill out this form. Right now all our volunteer spots are filled, but this form will add you to our list. We expect many opportunities to volunteer in the months to come. If you are interested, Hands and Hearts is also accepting volunteer requests.

Will this money go directly to the victims of the fire?
Maui Food Bank serves the three islands of Maui County, and we are already seeing the funding we have been receiving has helped us.
What is Maui Food Bank doing right now?
In the first eight days of response, we sent out food for 146,000 pounds of food. Our longtime agency partners are distributing food on the west side and for displaced families. We are also sending produce to partners like Chef Hui and Mercy Chefs who are preparing thousands of meals daily.
