2,000 Pounds of Food Distributed
By Catherine Cluett Pactol
Those in need on Molokai received more than 2,000 pounds of food in a distribution at the Maui Economic Opportunity office last Thursday. Every third Thursday monthly, MEO runs distribution of the federal surplus food, which is a part of SNAP. The Maui Food Bank ships food over to the island, along with fresh produce grown by farmers on Molokai and Maui.
Pictured here, Nani Maikui helped with the drive-thru distribution of more than 1,100 pounds of nonperishable food items and about 1,000 pounds of fresh items, which included fruit, veggies and cheese. Additionally, more than 50 boxes of food were given to kupuna.
