Ever wonder how that food gets to the pantry? Well, in addition to the generous produce donations from local farmers, our volunteers shop. A major source for food is the Hawaii Food Bank. http://www.hawaiifoodbank.org/kauai Here’s a peek at the May 10, 2019 shopping trip at the Food Bank.
Know anyone dealing with food insecurity? We can help. The Kaua’i North Shore Food Pantry is open on Saturdays, 3:30-4:30pm. Arrive earlier to sign in (Meral and Bill will help, and are shown below). There are plenty of options including fresh produce (only part of supply is shown in picture below), canned goods, etc. available […]
Here are a few recently discovered pictures, including the new van, Saturday setup, etc.
Well, we had a new refrigerator and freezer at the Parish Hall. However, they turned out to be noisier that we expected and disrupted other groups that use the building. So, we moved the new refrigerator and freezer to an off site location generously donated by a supporter of the food bank. Now we have […]
Our old refrigerators and freezers were not big enough to hold the food we give away every week. So we purchased new ones! They were delivered and installed Monday and are up and running. We hope to store more food more easily. We are excited to start using them!!
We hope you all survived the non-hurricane and then the heavy rains that followed. The parish hall is dry and ready for the pantry to open its doors this Saturday (9/1) as usual. We look forward to seeing you!
Aloha one and all! This Saturday, 8/25/2018, the Food Pantry will be closed. After much thought, it was agreed that our primary concern is the safety of our volunteers and shoppers. We want everyone to stay safe in the expected storm/hurricane. Please prepare and make good choices. We will be back next Saturday 9/1/2018. See […]

We offer food to people of all ages in our community. This past Saturday we were excited to meet and welcome the two youngest shoppers at the Food Pantry. Here, Cathy Butler holds Zoe and Chloe, twins just 10 days old, while their mother shopped. It warmed our hearts to be part of their lives. […]
This week at the Food Pantry was exceptional. First, we have new tee shirts for our volunteers who are proudly displaying the Kauai North Shore Food Pantry logo. Second, although we are sad about the passing of Ric Cox, a remarkable man who founded Aloha Angels and raised over two million dollars in 2 years […]
