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 to support Kauai schools and teachers, we were happy to receive a surprise luncheon. Ric’s celebration of life was held in Kilauea as the food pantry volunteers were doing our usual Saturday set up. Michael Dexter-Smith called to ask if the volunteers and shoppers at the pantry would like lunch as there was more than enough food at the celebration of life. He then brought the food, a delicious buffet, which was enjoyed by all.
Lastly, in the recent weeks our produce offerings have dwindled due to seasonal variations. We are happy to again have an abundance of fresh produce from the food bank and donated from our generous neighbors. We are proud to offer a selection of healthy and often organic produce. A big Mahalo to our neighbors who share their fruits and vegetables!
