HMSA, Punahou School, help boost Hawaii Foodbank’s low supply

…the Hawaii Foodbank, which recently dipped to the lowest supply it has seen in years — just eight days worth of food — at its Oahu warehouse, as I reported mid-November. Since then the supply has climbed up to 10 days and was up to 12 days as of Tuesday, Vice President and COO Polly Kauahi told PBN.

“That is a great recovery, but it is still not where we would like to be,” Kauahi said. “Four days makes a huge difference when we’re talking about feeding islanders in need.”

Punahou School also recently donated several thousand pounds worth of food to the Hawaii Foodbank, and there are many organizations still running corporate drives and grocery stores running retail drives through December.
