Did you know that if Hawaii were hit by a natural disaster, we would only have only two to three weeks supply of food – and that’s not considering that people would begin hoarding the minute that fear of the disaster hit! In the aftermath of a frenzy of people buying all they could, Hawaii’s food supply could last only a few days!
As we kick off our annual Shop For Higher Education program this month, helping Hawaii’s students achieve their dreams of attending college couldn’t be easier. Stop by our store, select one of the 85 participating schools, and then shop with your Maika’i card. We’ll do the rest. Every time you shop through March 29th, your favorite school will earn points towards scholarships for their seniors. It’s all so ... more »
It always amazes us and warms our hearts that our customers are so generous and kind in supporting those in need during the holidays each year. This past holiday season, through your donations at checkout, we were able to provide more than $96,000 in holiday meals to Hawaii’s families!
Thank you so much on behalf of Foodland, The Salvation Army and the thousands of families who benefited from your thoughtfulness.

Introducing our brand-new line of Musubi T-shirts! Based on the design of our popular Musubi Reusable Bag, these t-shirts are just in time for the holidays and make a great last-minute holiday gift! (I actually just bought some for my whole family last weekend!)
Choose from the “Musubi Bunch” design (a super cute design that incorporates all ten of the musubi varieties found on our reusable bag) or the “Giant Musubi” design that teaches you how to make the perfect spam musubi.
Coffee connoisseurs can appreciate the pristine purity of Wing's of the Morning 100% Kona coffee. This is the type of small production farming that we normally associate with fine wine-making. Ka'lo farms is located on the high, steep, and rocky slopes in Kona. This elevation is great for the berries, and bad for mechanical harvesting, so nearly all of the picking is done by hand, berry-by-berry. This personal care and hand selection makes for a much higher quality and truly pure ... more »
I’ve come to realize that as a kama`aina company, Foodland truly cares about our community and the place we call home. In one of our meetings, someone reported that an average Hawaii family uses more than 700 plastic bags a year for grocery shopping. With more than 400,000 Hawaii households, that’s more than 280,000,000 plastic bags a year! We knew that we needed to work towards changing those statistics.
Twelve years ago, a few weeks before Thanksgiving, one of our Maui customers shared a wonderful idea with us. While shopping at our Pukalani store, she had purchased several extra turkeys and asked our store director to give them to needy families in the area. She called to tell us that she believed other customers would like to do the same, and asked whether Foodland could help make it possible.
We have been working hard to add more features to our site and make it an even better experience for all of our customers. We are excited to have launched our Online Shop to help you with all of your Holiday gifts and allow you to order our products anytime and anywhere throughout the US.
We have heard from many of our customers that they are excited to get a "taste of the islands" from many locations throughout the mainland where they now live.
I can’t tell you how excited I am about the new program we kicked off at Foodland earlier this week! Our Take the Bag Challenge invites customers to join us in committing to use only reusable bags when they shop over the next six weeks and our hope is that we can change habits, help protect Hawaii’s environment and reduce our plastic bag usage by 50%! It’s a big goal, but one we are confident we can achieve with your help!
