The goal of the Community Pulse Survey is to find out who needs assistance and who can kōkua (offer help) during this public health emergency. Completing the survey will help us map out existing food assistance efforts, deploy resources thoughtfully and strategically, and increase public awareness and support.
Hawaiʻi Island residents and organizations—please take a moment to complete the survey if:

Learn how you can get a Care Pack for your keiki or help us distribute them to children in need, island wide! Each pack contains approximately $15 worth of items for kids and young teens, including non-perishable food stuffs, curated coloring sheets, activities, resources to help children better understand the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as materials to support parents to engage their keiki and cope with the stresses of living through this pandemic. Follow the links below to learn more or to make a donation. Mahalo for your kōkua!
Our calendar includes community emergency food assistance programs and opportunities to access food—like farmer’s markets—on Hawaiʻi Island during the COVID-19 public health emergency. We’ll be continually updating this calendar as we receive new information. If there are any programs not listed below that you’d like for us to include on the calendar, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mahalo!
