Mahalo for your support with Share a Holiday Feast!

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 brightened their spirits. This year, your kindness and compassion to help feed the hungry during the holidays, set an all-time record, raising more than $128,000!

In addition, we know that many of you not only supported Share a Holiday Feast, but our Kokua Philippines program which ran simultaneously for 2 weeks to help Philippine disaster victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Thanks to your unselfish benevolence, and a dollar-for-dollar matching gift from the Western Union Foundation, $108,964.06 was sent to the American Red Cross for relief efforts.

As a local, family-owned business, we are so grateful to you, our valued customers, for your patronage. On behalf of Foodland and the thousands of people, both in Hawaii and the Philippines, who benefited from your generosity and thoughtfulness, thank you so much!
