Financial Partners

Currently, Hau`oli Mau Loa continues to be a major financial supporter and Aloha Harvest has been working hard to cultivate financial support from the community to expand our financial base. Other sources of income have come from other foundations such as the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, Harry & Jeannette Weinberg Foundation, Alexander & Baldwin LLC and more.  In addition, Aloha Harvest also receives support from the Aloha United Way Donor Option Program, the Combined Federal Campaign (#8377), the Give Aloha Program (#78185) and fundraising projects such as our Stay At Home Event, Fill the Truck Food Drive and Agency Fair & Food Drive to develop and grow individual donors. We invite you to become a financial donor partner. Your support will help us continue our work of feeding Hawai`i’s hungry. We are most grateful for all the financial support provided by these donors from July 1, 2012 thru June 30, 2013, Financial Donors FYE 2013.

 

DONATE FUNDS

It takes money to keep Aloha Harvest running...getting food from where there is extra to where it is needed, takes people and vehicles. Aloha Harvest does this for a fraction of the value of the cost per pound of food we provide to those in need.

There is much more we can do, we are only limited by our financial resources. With your help Aloha Harvest can fund the trucks and drivers needed to get more food to the needy of O`ahu and reduce wasted food. We invite you to become a financial donor partner. Your support will help us continue our work of feeding Hawai`i's hungry.

Food Safety & Liability

Aloha Harvest was planned using Department of Health guidelines, setting up an efficient sanitary system for the responsible handling of food. Aloha Harvest voluntarily requires that all drivers successfully complete the Health Department's Food Safety Education Program. The Aloha Harvest vehicles are refrigerated with freezing capability to maintain the food at the proper temperature and is sanitized, inside and out, on a weekly basis by a professional cleaner.

Both the Food Donor and Recipient Social Service Agency are protected by two important government laws:

Federal – Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act of 1996 (42 USC §17911) (create a link to the Bill Emerson PDF)

(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 (HRS 145D §-1, §-2, §-3, §-4, §-5)

[§145D-2] Exceptions to liability. (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. 

        Food Donors

Aloha Harvest fills a vital niche in O‘ahu's community. Thousands of would-be hungry individuals depend on Aloha Harvest's deliveries of donated food every day. This innovative concept of transferring food from the "haves" to the have-nots" is a cost-effective approach to alleviating hunger among one-in-four islanders.

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.

Do you run a restaurant, catering service, hotel or food distribution warehouse? Are you planning a catered event, Luau or organizing a food drive? Help us feed Hawai`i’s hungry with your excess food by calling our office. We’ll pick up your food donations that would otherwise go to waste, and deliver it directly to one of our social service agencies.
