Background

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Aloha Harvest partnered with Chef Hui and Pacific Gateway Center to get meals to keiki, kupuna and families in need.

Who We Worked With

Founded by the Hauoli Mau Loa Foundation in 1999, Aloha Harvest is a non-profit organization that rescues quality, donated food and delivers it free of charge to social service agencies feeding hungry people in Hawaii.

A feasibility study considered the unique challenges surrounding food insecurity and waste in Hawaii and engaged in discussions with potential food donors, recipients, and community leaders. The outcome was Aloha Harvest. Hauoli Mau Loa based the model on City Harvest, a highly successful and internationally replicated food recovery system developed in 1982.

How We Partnered
