The nonprofit Hawai‘i REALTORS Charitable Foundation launched its second-annual #OneCanIfCan food drive to help support Hawai‘i food banks on Thursday.

Non-perishable food items can be donated at dozens of locations statewide, as well as pop-up supermarket collection points, through Aug. 31, 2021. A complete list of locations is available at HawaiiRealtors.com/FoodDrive. Monetary donations will also be accepted. All donations will benefit their respective island food banks.

“The Hawai‘i REALTORS Charitable Foundation recognizes the incredible strain our food banks are under during the COVID-19 pandemic as one in six Hawai‘i residents struggles with hunger,” said Moana Andersen, president of the foundation. “Even a small donation makes a big difference in helping feed families in need.”

The Hawai‘i REALTORS Charitable Foundation collected $14,000 in monetary donations and 3,700 pounds of non-perishable food items during its first-ever food drive in September and October 2020. This year the foundation hopes to provide tens of thousands of meals to island food banks, with a goal of collecting $50,000 and 8,000 pounds of food. According to the Hawai‘i Foodbank, a donation of $10 helps provide food for 25 meals.
