    Then, when the mail gets delivered to your house, your local mail carrier will collect that donation and deliver it to a local food bank.

    So, don’t forget to leave some food out and let’s help each other help Hawaii’s hungry.

    This Saturday marks two great events for the Hawaii Food Bank.  First up is the 1st Annual Bake for Hunger Bake Sale at the Bishop Museum.  This bake sale will feature baked goodies from throughout the island.  Proceeds from the event go to benefit children who otherwise would go hungry without the help and support of the community.

    Koko Marina Center; Town Center of Mililani; McCully Shopping Center; Pearl Highlands Shopping Center; Pearl City Shopping Center; Windward City Shopping Center; Waiokeola Congregational Church, Kahala.

    The Hawaii Food Bank is the charity of choice for atypicalLIVING, so we would definitely appreciate it if you give either some canned goods or some money to help support the Food Bank.  Everyone deserves a good meal, and we strongly believe in that.  So, if you enjoy the content and coverage we provide here on atypicalLIVING, consider showing your support for the site by showing your support to our favorite charity.

    The Bake for Hunger event goes from 9am-2pm at the Bishop Museum.

    The Food Drive goes from 8am-4pm at the locations listed above.

    National Association of Letter Carriers Annual Food Drive 

    NALC_Page_1

    Tomorrow is the National Association of Letter Carriers Annual Food Drive. What this means is that you can leave any non-perishable canned goods in your mail box for the employees of the United States Postal Service to pick up.

    May seems to be food drive month, as every weekend there has been an effort to help feed Hawaii’s hungry.

    Since one of us used to work at the Post Office and all of us want to help feed the hungry, this is a great opportunity to help out.

    The instructions are simple: take any non-perishable food item (aka something in a can) and leave it in a bag in your mailbox. When the mail delivery comes, they’ll grab the food, then take it to the Food Bank warehouse to be distributed later.

    Items that are most desired: canned meats (SPAM, Corned Beef Hash, Tuna), meals in a can, pasta, and soup.)

    Any donation, even if it’s just one can, is highly appreciated.

    Just make sure there are some cans in your mailbox before the mail comes tomorrow.

    For more info and other ways you can help, check out the Hawaii Food Bank website.
