Hawaii food pantries and banks.

Families facing a difficult period may receive free food or groceries from a Hawaii pantry or non-profit food bank. Most of the centers can provide some short term relief to the unemployed, seniors, and people faced with an unexpected crisis.

Many of the leading distribution centers in Hawaii are listed below. Food pantries can operate from churches, non-profits like the Salvation Army, or other charity organizations. While many are open limited hours, and may restrict who or how many times someone may receive free food, the locations will do their best to not turn anyone away from receiving help. If you need assistance and a food bank is not close by to where you live, then dial a location below for referrals, or call the main number at the bottom of the page. Many of the centers in Hawaii will also provide other forms of aid. For example, call a food pantry for items such as clothing, holiday meals, household goods, and referrals to other social services.

Struggling or low income families can get help with other needs as well. Click here for information and phone numbers of other assistance programs in Hawaii.
