Aloha Harvest

No one in Hawai‘i should go hungry. At Aloha Harvest, this belief drives all that they do. Modeled after the City Harvest program in New York City, Aloha Harvest was founded in 1999.  As of March 2014, the organization has distributed more than twelve million pounds of food to feed Hawai‘i’s hungry. Aloha Harvest’s success has been due to the partnerships they’ve forged with food providers on the one hand, and social service agencies that feed the hungry on the other.

Based in Honolulu, Hawai‘i, Aloha Harvest is a nonprofit organization that rescues quality donated food and delivers it free of charge to over 170 social service organizations who serve thousands of meals to hungry individuals each month. The approach is a “green,” common-sense and cost-effective way of taking food from places of abundance to where it is needed. Picking up and delivering food the same day is an efficient system that keeps costs down and reduces hunger on the streets. No food warehouse expense is incurred, and all donated food, which meets strict donation guidelines, is given to charitable agencies in an equitable manner on a rotating basis.
