Take the Bag Challenge
We are excited to announce our "Take the Bag challenge" in an effort to encourage our customers to use reusable bags and help cut down on the number of bags used in Hawaii. Remember to take the pledge next time you shop with us and also encourage your friends and family to do the same.
How do I pledge?
Beginning November 7th, when you shop at Foodland you notify our cashiers at checkout that you wish to pledge to take the bag challenge. You will immediately join the other customers that have taken the pledge to Take the Bag Challenge.
How does the Bag Challenge Work?
Once you take the Bag Challenge pledge, from November 7th until January 30th we will track when you shop at Foodland and use a reusable bag. Once you have shopped with us 10 times and used reusable bags, we will award you 100 Bonus Maika`i Points.
Where do I get a cool reusable bag?
Foodland of course. Right now it is even easier because you can receive a FREE reusable bag or insulated bag when you take the Bag Challenge pledge and spend $25 or more.* This is valid until November 30th. To see some of our great bags just click here.
*Excludes canvas bags. Some restrictions apply.
Does it count if I use 10 bags in 1 visit?
Our goal is to encourage our customers to get in the habit of using reusable bags and help reduce bag usage here in Hawaii. With this in mind, to qualify for the 100 Bonus Maika`i Points it is measure on bag usage for 10 shopping trips not how many bags are used in each trip.
Does it count if I don't use a bag?
Our hope is to help encourage our customers to always think about reusable bags when they shop at Foodland. So we do appreciate no bag being used, but that will not count toward the 10 visits using reusable bags.
Mahalo to all our customers for Taking the Bag Challenge and helping us reduce the number of bags we use in Hawaii.

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. Each year we witness your generosity when it comes to helping those who are less fortunate and in need of food, as they struggle make it through the holidays. Your donations allowed them to have meal that they might not have otherwise had and it certainly ... more »
