As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all of our work is made possible by the generosity and support of our community. Mahalo nui loa to everyone who enables us to #FeedPeopleNotLandfills!

Special Government Recognitions

On June 1, 2022, we celebrated an incredible milestone of 30 million pounds of food rescued since we began in 1999!

We were deeply honored to receive official proclamations from both the offices of Hawaiʻi Governor David Ige and City & County of Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi announcing June 2022 as “Aloha Harvest Month”. The Council of the City & County of Honolulu also officially recognized and honored Aloha Harvest and our executive director Phil Acosta for service excellence and contributions to food assistance for the residents of O‘ahu.

2021 Funding for Special Projects

Mahalo page acknowledgements_Ulupono

A $15K grant from the Ulupono Fund at the Hawai‘i Community Foundation will help fund a strategic study to be conducted March-August 2021. The Hawai‘i Alliance for Community-Based Economic Development is helping us:

🔹 Analyze & predict staff/funding expansion needs
🔍 Research facilities that can house our growing administrative and operational functions
🍏 Create a snapshot of community needs as related to our services + anticipate future areas for growth

A $15K grant from the HT Hayashi Foundation will enable us to extend upon the research from the Hawai‘i Alliance for Community-Based Economic Development and put new strategies into action.


“We believe in supporting the capacity of nonprofits to do what they do,” said Jan Harada, Executive Director. “We appreciate that Aloha Harvest has been focused on improvement through the strategy work they are doing with the Hawai‘i Alliance for Community Based Economic Development, and are excited to follow that up with a grant to support implementation needs that are identified in that strategy and plan.”

This spring, we launched a new program called Community Harvest. For this project, we coordinate supervised volunteers to help harvest excess and/or unsold produce on farms, in backyards, and gardens. We then redistribute this food to our network of nonprofits and social service agencies feeding the community, including The Pantry by Feeding Hawaiʻi Together and Kōkua Kalihi Valley.  


Whole Foods Market is supplementing this program by donating $20,000 worth of pantry goods and recipe cards from May to August! The recipes and pantry staples donated by Whole Foods Market can help people create healthy and delicious meals.
