Lend a Hand, Give a Can

The Hawaiʻi Foodbank has kicked off its Annual State Employees Food Drive running through May 13, and the goal this year is to raise $147,000 and 39,000 pounds of food.

The top five most wanted items are: monetary contributions, canned proteins (chicken/tuna), canned meals (stew/spaghetti), canned vegetables/fruit, and rice (five to ten-pound bags are preferred).

Still teleworking and not physically on campus? Please note that monetary donations are also accepted via the Hawaiʻi Foodbank’s Online Donation page.  

In 2021, UH employees donated more than $90,000 (which provided food for 204,374 meals) and more than 11,940 pounds of food for the Hawaiʻi Foodbank, making UH one of the largest contributors among all State offices. 

Please take a moment to consider contributing to assist those who are most in need. For more info, visit Hawaii Foodbank.

***This year, CTAHR is holding a friendly competition between departments to reach our college’s goal of collecting $3,000 and 7,500 pounds of food. For more information, please contact Carol Oshiro at tranc@hawaii.edu
