Help Feed Hawai'i

Instead of letting your food go to waste, join Aloha Harvest in collecting and redistributing food to Hawai'iʻs hungry.

Our Mission

In Hawai'i, about 1 in 7 people are food insecure and yet 474 million pounds of food is wasted annually. Aloha Harvest is the only nonprofit in Hawai`i that does large-scale food rescue and redistribution, getting quality excess food into stomachs instead of landfills. Free of charge and free of liability, we pick up excess food from 250+ donors and deliver it to 175+ social service agencies feeding the hungry. Now in our 20th year, we have rescued and redistributed over 23 million pounds of food that would have otherwise been wasted.

Feed the Hungry

One in five Hawai'i residents relies on a food bank or pantry for support. For Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, that rate is over 35%. Aloha Harvest acts as a collaborator with social service agencies to supply free food to the most vulnerable members of our community.

Protect the Environment

Around 26% of the local food supply (273,122 tons) is thrown away annually. By diverting excess food from entering the waste stream, Aloha Harvest reduces our environmental footprint and our dependence on landfills.

Boost the Economy

Hawai'i annually spends about $3 million importing 85%-95% of its food, making us vulnerable to events that disrupt shipping. The cost of our annual food waste comes out to about $1.025 billion annually. Food rescue saves the state money and strengthens our
economy in both of these areas.
