New Routines – Same Great Food – New Van

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 a system to buy, transport, store, transport and deliver the food. A few more steps than in the past but it seems to be working well. Everyone has pitched in and once again we see our community pulling together to make things work! Mahalo to everyone for the extra effort and for your patience during this transition.
Great news on the transportation front! Thanks to the work of several people; board members, our grant writer, and our supporters, we have a new van. It is much larger so we don’t need 3 vehicles going to Lihue and Puhi every week to get the food to the parish hall. Look for the van – it will have the Food Pantry logo on both sides. We love it already!!
Last, we are, as always< grateful to our neighbors who bring fresh, usually organic produce to the pantry every week. Right now we have a lot of citrus but also beautiful greens, taro, ulu, and more! Your donations help make our pantry a truly special place!
