Get Involved in the Rescue
Aloha Harvest has collected and distributed over 21 million pounds of food which now includes quality perishable and non-perishable foods, as well as beverages. The food has been donated by over 1,000 participating donors, such as restaurants, caterers, government facilities, hotels, food distributors, businesses and others. This food would otherwise be discarded and gone to waste.
Become a Food Donor
Not only does Aloha Harvest provide much needed food to feed the hungry, but Aloha Harvest helps to keep good quality food from going to waste and diverts it from the waste stream.
Both the Food Donor and Recipient Social Service Agency are protected by two important government laws:
(c) Liability for damages from donated food and grocery products.
(1) Liability of a person or gleaner.
A person or gleaner shall not be subject to civil or criminal liability arising from the nature, age, packaging, or condition of apparently wholesome food or an apparently fit grocery product that the person or gleaner donates in good faith to a nonprofit organization for the ultimate distribution to needy individuals.
State – Hawaii Good Samaritan Donation of Food Act
- (a) Any donor of food products, who in good faith donates the food for the use or distribution by a charitable, religious, or nonprofit organization to needy persons shall not be liable for any civil damages or criminal penalties for any injuries or illnesses including, but not limited to injuries or illnesses resulting from the nature, age, condition, packaging, or handling of the donated food products, except for such damages as may result from the donor’s gross negligence or wanton acts or omissions.
Other Ways to Give
We have an annual Stay at Home mailer campaign in the Fall that generates support for individual donors. Contact us or signup for our mailing list to learn more.
