Aloha Harvest is a non-profit organization that rescues quality, donated food and delivers it free of charge to social service agencies feeding hungry people in Hawai‘i.
Founded in 1999, Aloha Harvest is the sole food rescue organization in the state. Our mission is to “rescue and deliver quality, excess food to help feed the needy, hungry, and homeless in Hawai’i”.
Unlike food bank organizations, Aloha Harvest does not store any food. We pick up perishable and nonperishable food from donors and deliver same day (free of charge) to social service agencies, who in turn, prepare and distribute the food to those in need. We support many food pantries run by social service agencies and churches by providing them nonperishable foods.
Our perishable food donations, such as excess prepared foods from banquets and restaurants, are delivered on the same day to agencies that serve hot meals to the hungry.
We strive to fill the unique needs of all non-profit agencies, by providing them with the appropriate type of food in the requested quantities.
As a food rescue organization, we play a critical role alongside food banks and food pantries in the fight against hunger.
And you can, too.
