As Hawai‘i continues to see the impacts of Tropical Depression Lane, The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services has been asked to serve as the lead agency for the Hawai‘i Mass Care Feeding Taskforce, which coordinates emergency feeding throughout the islands for this storm event.

The Salvation Army is part of a team of agencies providing assistance during events and works closely with the State of Hawai‘i Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) and other state and federal agencies.

The task force will assess and coordinate feeding needs as the storm’s impacts continue to be assessed on each island.

Interested groups or entities with feeding capacity should complete a online form so that the task force can quickly contact them should the need arise in their area during this and potential future events.
