Bag Up Hunger at Foodland!
I love to eat! I have a long list of my favorite foods and places where I enjoy eating at. I guess you could say I take eating for granted. When I realized that so many Hawaii families don’t have that luxury, I began to understand the importance of supporting our local food banks. Food banks work tirelessly to gather food and support from our communities so that they can help the thousands of individuals and families who struggle every day to feed themselves. According to a “Hunger in Hawaii 2010” report, 183,500 families benefit from the Hawaii Foodbank. That’s 14% of our state’s population.
Each year Foodland and Sack N Save commits our support to "Bag Up Hunger" with our annual in-store program. Customers are invited to make a donation of $5, $10 or $20, simply by tearing off a denomination slip from signs posted at checkout. The donations raised on each island go to the food bank on the island where the donation was made, and will help purchase the food banks’ most needed items such as canned meats and vegetables for those in need.
So the next time you’re shopping, take a moment to help those in need. We are proud to work together with our customers. Let’s all strive to make a positive difference in our community. Mahalo for your support!

Have you ever been so busy that you missed a meal because you didn’t have the time to eat? Surely it happens to all of us occasionally, but once we realize it, we hardly give it a second thought because we know we can eat almost whenever we please - some families in our communities don't always have that luxury.
We are truly amazed by the generosity of our customers. Despite tough economic conditions for many, our customers always rally for a good cause, and especially when it comes to caring for the extended family of island residents.
