Kokua Harvest

The Kokua Harvest Project is the first Hawaii Island-wide food rescue project: collecting/harvesting of excess fresh food from farms and other sources for donation to local food pantries and community partners.This project aims to prevent food waste at its source, build community resilience and connection, and strengthen access to healthy, nutrient-dense fresh fruit and vegetables for low-income families. Through the act of rescuing and sharing food, we intend to connect and nourish our community to build stronger relationships and a deeper appreciation for our 'aina and the food it gives us.

Kokua Tree

Kokua Tree is devoted to reducing food waste and food insecurity in the state of Hawai'i. We accomplish this by rescuing surplus fresh produce from private homeowner backyards and farmer's markets and get it to those who need it most through our hunger relief agency partners. We are a student-run nonprofit organization established in three schools: Punahou, Sacred Hearts, and Island Pacific Academy. We hope to inspire other students into joining our mission and fighting hunger!
