We source produce, fish, beef, shrimp, eggs, and more from local producers and supply it to the monthly Molokai Food Bank Distributions to supplement the boxes provided to our island's food pantries by Maui Food Bank with fresh local food.
Monthly Food Bank distribution to Molokai’s Food Pantries is the 3rd Thursday of every month!
In 2021, we donated 10,000 pounds of local food to Molokai ʻohana through our food pantries, and put over $75,000 back into our island economy.

We source directly from local farmers, producers, and fishers.
