The Hawaii Foodbank is teaming up with private partners from the construction and development industry to bring resources to communities that are further away from Honolulu’s downtown core.
“The demand for food assistance remains extremely high,” said Hawaii Foodbank President and CEO Ron Mizutani. “We’re grateful for this private sector partnership between the construction, development and other industries that will help feed Hawaii’s families during this unprecedented time. The Hawaii Farm Bureau, Hawaii Foodservice Alliance, H&W Foodservice and Sysco Hawaii are also partnering with the foodbank to provide high quality food products to more than 3,000 households in Windward and Leeward Oahu as well as the North Shore community. The $250,000 needed to make these distributions happen is being donated by the following partners in the construction and development industry: Commercial Plumbing Inc., Bowers + Kubota, Kobayashi Group, Black Sand Capital, Albert C. Kobayashi, J. Kadowaki Inc., Moss Construction – Hawaii, JL Capital, Ferguson Enterprises – Hawaii, Great Aloha Run, Design Partners Inc., RMY Construction Inc., Nagamine Okawa Engineers, Okahara and Associates, Brookfield Properties, and Hawaii Executive Collaborative.
