How can we help?


We’ve gathered these important resources for you – our neighbors, families and friends – to find the assistance you need, when and where you need it.






Through a mix of supplemental food programs, traditional food pantries and congregate meal sites, we aim to provide people with access to the type of food assistance they need. In addition to food, these community food access programs provide social contact and promote community cohesiveness — critical components in building individual and Hawai`i Island resiliency.
