Details

Did you know that more than 36 percent of college students nationwide are going hungry because food is too expensive? Lack of proper nutrition and hunger can impact a student’s ability to learn. In response, campuses across the University of Hawaiʻi System are establishing food pantries to help students get access to the supplies they need. You can help too.

The University of Hawaiʻi Alumni Association invites all alumni and friends to help support students in need. Donate items listed below to the upcoming food drive.

Items needed

  • Canned meats (SPAM, tuna, chicken, salmon,
  • corned beef, Vienna sausage)
  • Canned vegetables/fruits
  • Canned meals (stew, spaghetti, chili)
  • Canned soups
  • Small packaged pasta
  • Tomato sauce, meat sauces
  • 2-5 pound bags of rice
  • Cup noodles/instant ramen
  • Mac and cheese (ready to make)
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly, jam, honey
  • Beans
  • Mini boxes of cereal
  • Granola, oatmeal
  • Nuts (almonds, peanuts, etc.)
  • Toiletries (individually wrapped toilet paper, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, deodorant, pads, tampons)
