Mahalo to everyone who participated in Foodland’s Bag Up Hunger program. Together, through your donations at checkout, $10,000 support from Unilever, and coins collected at our Change Angels event near Market City, a total of $58,577.25 was collected for Hawaii’s food banks to support the thousands of people who are hungry in Hawaii. We are truly amazed that nearly $11,000 more was raised this year as compared to last year!
It was heartwarming to read a letter we just received from one of our first Shop for Higher Education scholarship recipients back in 2006. She expressed her deep gratitude for the scholarship that she received from us, and explained that it allowed her to focus on her scholastic endeavors and not worry about how she would finance her college education. Having received a degree in Criminology and Law from a ... more »
This month marks the 64th anniversary of Foodland’s founding, an occasion we look forward to celebrating with all of you. Each year, our anniversary reminds us of how fortunate and blessed we are to have great customers and employees who support us. Locally owned, family businesses like ours are few and far between today (in fact, Foodland and KTA are the only locally owned supermarket chains remaining in Hawaii) and we know our company would not be here today if it were not for all of ... more »
Our company Vice Chairman, Roger Wall, has been named the Hawaii State Chair for the 2012 March for Babies, which helps raise money to support expectant mothers and babies right here in Hawaii.

Every year, Foodland is proud to carry beautiful Easter Lilies grown locally at Howard’s Nursery in Kula, Maui. The handsome gentleman pictured to the left is Howard Takishita, owner of Howard’s Nurseries, Inc, and the green thumb responsible for producing these wonderful lilies. What you may not know is that these same lilies that he tirelessly cultivates especially for our customers, hold a very special place in his heart.
All of us here at Foodland were thrilled to learn that we were voted “best grocery store” by readers of Honolulu Magazine. What a tremendous honor this is – especially during a year in which we were faced not only with having to close our Hawaii Kai store after nearly 50 years, but also with mass merchants like WalMart and Target selling more food and our competitors opening new stores right near ours. We know that you have more choices than ever of where you do your grocery shopping, ... more »
When our annual Share a Holiday Feast program launched on November 1st, we wondered how well we’d do this year, considering Hawaii’s struggling economy. We could only hope we would raise as much we did as last year ($96,226.17) to help those in need enjoy a holiday meal with their families. We shouldn’t have been surprised when the final donations were calculated – after all, people in Hawaii have always been more than generous for good ... more »

We are so excited about our new partnership with Shane Victorino and excited to announce the winner of our Flyin’ Hawaiian Poke. Without further waiting…the winner is HOME PLATE!
