Rowena, our Adult Outreach Coordinator has been extremely busy over the last few weeks helping get food to those in need.
She is picking up and dropping off Department of Education meals to keiki living in Kamalani Kai campground as well as other families in need.
Through this program, she delivers 260 meals daily to several houseless groups.
"The program began after the owners of Da Spot and Blue Water Shrinp &Seafood in Honolulu partnered with other O‘ahu leaders to form Malama Meals. The venture joins restaurants that have been forced to shut down by the COVID crisis, food trucks and Honolulu government agencies.
Before this week, Malama Meals had been distributing 3,200 meals a day exclusively on O‘ahu, at 37 locations. The organization, which launched March 21, has started a fundraising drive that hopes for $1 million in donations to underwrite the expanding meals program that now serves two islands."
Mahalo nui loa to Rowena for your willingness to provide this outreach to our community in need.
