About 400 bags of food distributed to Hana residents in need

 

About 400 bags of food were distributed Wednesday, April 29, to individuals impacted by COVID-19 in Hana.

The distribution was a joint effort with Project Ho`omana, VIP Foodservice, Mahi Pono, Maui Soda & Ice Works, Maui County Farm Bureau, the County of Maui and countless volunteers.

Over 5,000 bags of food and produce have been distributed to communities across Maui County.

“To all the local businesses and volunteers in the Hana community, mahalo for making this a huge success for our people in need,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “These food distributions have brought our community closer together and they would not have been possible without the help of all our partners. I continue to be grateful for all their support.”
