Join Us in the Fight Against Hunger in Hawaii! NALC Food Drive – May 11, 2024

Did you know that one in four keiki in Hawaii faces hunger? This staggering statistic from the Hawaii Foodbank underscores the urgent need to address food insecurity in our communities. That’s why we’re excited to announce the upcoming National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Food Drive on May 11, 2024!

This annual event is a vital lifeline for our local food banks, bringing in hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to support those in need across Hawaii. Your willingness to volunteer would make a meaningful difference in the lives of our neighbors struggling with hunger.

Volunteer Opportunities

On Oahu, we’re calling on 200 dedicated volunteers to join us at the Hawaii Foodbank to help sort the incoming donations. Your assistance is crucial in ensuring that the food gets to those who need it most in a timely and organized manner. Together, we can make a significant impact in “stamping out hunger” here in Hawaii!
