With Your Help

pounds of food has been rescued since November 1999!
Give Food

There is no liability when donating food to a non-profit thanks to the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act. With this national law in place, regional and national donors have the uniform language that protects them from civil and criminal liability. See how you can be part of the solution.

What is New

Empty Bowl 2019

Empty Bowl Hawai`i is a unique event where hundreds of artists and chefs collaborate to support food security and end hunger. Each purchase to this unique event includes tickets to redeem soup, tasty bites, bread and a handmade bowl.

New this year, all attendees will receive 3 food tickets–each ticket is good for either a soup with bread or a select few stations featuring tasty bites.

In addition to food, guests will enjoy live music by Coyne Street, and can also place bids in a robust silent auction.
