Kona Brewing Co. has donated more than $20,000 to local organizations to support their communities during this challenging time.
The donations include $10,000 to The Food Basket-Hawaii Island’s Food Bank and $10,000 to Aloha Harvest on O’ahu, in order to help these organizations feed people in need. In addition, $2,500 was donated to to Na Kama Kai to support its efforts to feed Oahu’s Westside community.
The Food Basket, in partnership with government and community partners, has activated an islandwide network to push out emergency food and supplies to families (Ohana Drops), seniors (Kupuna Pantry), and children (Keiki Care Packs).
“We are so grateful to the Kona Brewing Company for their partnership and support. Every dollar donated is critical to helping us get food on the tables of our families, friends and neighbors,” said Kristin Frost Albrecht, executive director of The Food Basket. “We are especially thrilled to use this donation to purchase 10,000 pounds of locally grown ‘ulu from the Hawaii Ulu Cooperative — not only helping to provide our most vulnerable residents with nutritious food — but also supporting over 100 farmers on our island.”
