Foodland's founder, the late Maurice J. "Sully" Sullivan, was a dynamic and outstanding leader who gave unselfishly and generously to his community, state and nation. Since 1948, his philosophy of giving back to the community has touched many lives and made a difference in the quality of life for the people of Hawaii. Today, we continue his legacy by working to build strong partnerships between our company, our customers and our community.
Foodland's Mission Statement, "Together, we create outstanding shopping experiences for our customers while building our community," was born from Sully's strong values. Every year Foodland partners with customers to present four unique programs that support our community. The programs focus on supporting higher education for Hawaii's high school seniors, supporting our customers' favorite non-profit organizations and providing food to those in need in Hawaii.
Foodland's Four Major Community Programs:
Each year 100 Hawaii high school seniors are awarded $2,000 scholarships to pursue their college education at an accredited four-year university. Customers are invited to designate their favorite participating high school at checkout and help their schools earn points during the program period. The more points a school earns, the more scholarships it receives.
Foodland customers are encouraged to make a donation of $5, $10 or $20 at checkout to support the efforts of the food banks on each of the four major islands.
Customers are encouraged to make a donation at checkout to their favorite Hawaii non-profit organization. Foodland and the Western Union Foundation match each donation up to a total of more than $250,000 for all organizations combined.
Begun in 1988, this annual program invites customers to make a donation at checkout to help the Salvation Army provide meals to Hawaii families in need during the holidays.
At Foodland, we direct the majority of our community support through the programs mentioned above. It is our hope that our efforts in these programs will touch many lives and assist a diverse set of needs within the community. Therefore, we do not fulfill individual requests for donations at this time. If you are a Hawaii non-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) status, we encourage you to register for participation in Give Aloha.
