Kauai Emergency Food Resources

Many food pantries and feeding sites are adjusting their programs to meet current needs. This info will likely change frequently. It’s highly recommended that you call before attending.

If you or someone you know is struggling and does not have transportation to get to feeding programs or pantries, we do have limited funding available for home delivery CSAs. You can complete an Intake Form Here.

If you run a program and would like to submit info to the directory, email megan@malamakauai.org. Last updated 5/22/20.
