Happy Summer! Just a few months ago, Aloha Harvest passed a significant milestone: since 1999 we have rescued over 10,000 tons of food to feed the hungry! In addition to feeding the hungry, this is also 10,000 tons of food removed from the waste management stream. We are proud of our work caring for the needy, reducing our dependence on imported food, and being good environmental stewards.
As we look forward to the 2nd half of 2018, we are pleased to announce that Sharon Spear has been appointed as our new Board Chair for the next two-year term. Sharon is the Publisher of Hawaii Magazine, and has served on the Board of Directors since 2016. Along with Sharon, new Board Officers include: Vice Chair Nicole Altman, Senior Counsel of Kamehameha Schools; Secretary Aulani Kekuna Cooper, Regional Sales Manager of Accel Party Rentals and Design; and Treasurer Joanna Oshiro, Partner at Deloitte, LLP. We are grateful to have these talented individuals dedicating their time and expertise to lead Aloha Harvest!
