Healthy Foods Drive

2015 Healthy Food Drive

Hunger or food insecurity affects many families and individuals on Kauai. A Healthy Food Drive is a great way to provide nutritious food to families in need. On June 20, 2015 Get Fit Kauai’s Access to Healthy Food Task Force hosted a Healthy Food Drive at the 2015 Mayor-A-Thon. 128 lbs of produce, 522 lbs of dry food and $90.00 were collected and donated evenly to The Kauai Independent Food Bank and The Hawaii Food Bank—Kauai Branch.
