The Basics

We redistribute food to nonprofits and social service agencies; we do not provide direct services or deliver food to individuals. Any agency that services the hungry on Oʻahu can apply to become a recipient agency of rescued food by following the steps listed below! 


Frequency, volume, and content of food dropoffs is based on what we rescue each day. In general, we rescue and redistribute a mix of fresh produce, dairy, breads, frozen & dry food items, and water/soft drinks. Due to the day-to-day fluctuation, our recipient agencies should plan to supplement their food supply with donations from other sources and purchased items as needed.

 

In 2020, Aloha Harvest delivered over 2.7 million lbs of rescued food to 273 agencies that help feed the hungry, needy and homeless. These include homeless shelters, social services, food pantries, veterans services, and more.
