Foodland has launched ‘Meals of Aloha’ to support families in need statewide with gift certificates distributed by The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands.

Now through April 30, Foodland will be accepting in-person monetary and Maika‘i points donations that will go directly toward supporting Hawai‘i’s families. Donations will be turned into $20 ‘Meals of Aloha’ gift certificates and distributed by The Salvation Army to families on the islands where the donations were received. The gift certificates can be used to purchase food for meals at any of Foodland’s 31 locations.

“Here at Foodland, we have many thoughtful and generous customers who are always looking for easy ways to support those in need. We are proud to partner with them and The Salvation Army to share our aloha and provide much-needed meals to Hawai‘i families,” said Jenai S. Wall, Foodland Chairman and CEO.

There are three ways customers can join the effort to help provide meals through Foodland and The Salvation Army’s ‘Meals of Aloha’ program:

  • Cash or credit card at checkout – give a donation in any multiple of $5, $10 or $20 at checkout.
  • 250 Maika‘i Points – donate 250 points for a $5 donation. Must be an enrolled Maika‘i member.
  • Round Up Your Grocery Bill – donate by rounding up your grocery total to the nearest dollar.

“We are humbled and grateful that longtime partner Foodland is supporting our food outreach efforts in island communities across the state,” said Major Troy Trimmer, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands.”
