Midas Hawaii "Drive Out Hunger" Tour For Hawaii Foodbank
Midas Hawaii, Hawaii Foodbank Want to ‘Drive Out Hunger'
Public Invited to Join The Cause
JOIN THE CAUSE
In 2012, 1 in 6 Americans lived in food insecure households, meaning they didn't know where their next meal was coming from. Midas stores across the country are stepping up to the empty plate to assist food banks in their community and those in need through the "Drive Out Hunger" initiative. Locally, Midas Hawaii is partnering with the Hawaii Foodbank--who serves 1 in 5 islanders each year--to bring foods, funds and hands-on assistance to hunger relief efforts here at home.
"Midas Hawaii has worked with the Hawaii Foodbank for many years because we believe it's important to give back to the community that supports your business," said Bob Pereira, President and Owner of Midas Hawaii. "The Hawaii Foodbank has a very difficult task but does an amazing job by distributing over 12.4 million pounds of food each year to nearly 287,000 islanders. We are happy to do whatever we can to support their efforts."
The top five most needed foods include:
- Canned meats (tuna, SPAM, Vienna Sausage)
- Canned meals (spaghetti, beef stew)
- Canned fruits
- Canned vegetables
