Mahalo for supporting Bag Up Hunger!
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!
While most of us take eating and the availability of food for granted, there are many others who can’t. On behalf of the hungry children, recently laid-off employees, and others in need living in Hawaii, thank you. From the pennies to the $20s, every donation matters to the 183,000 Hawaii residents who rely upon the food banks.
We are grateful to work together with you, our customers, to make a difference in our community and fulfill such an important and critical need -- feeding Hawaii’s hungry. From all of us here at Foodland, thank you once again for your kind generosity.

Bag Up Hunger at Foodland!
“I’m hungry.” This is an unfortunate, but all too common phrase, said by the thousands of people in Hawaii who struggle to find their next meal. According to the Hunger in America 2010 report by Feeding America, more than 14% of Hawaii’s population receives emergency food assistance. The face of Hawaii’s hungry ranges in all ages, from young to old, and across all ethnicities of our island population.
