Whether you like them served nice and cold, or even frozen, these sweet treats are both fragrant and refreshing. Peeling the unique shell off of these fruits is a little bit of a challenge, but the ... more »
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.

Having received a degree in Criminology and Law from a ... more »

Each year, our anniversary reminds us of how fortunate and blessed we are to have great customers and employees who support us.

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 »
