NOW through May 3: JABSOM Foodbank Drive: Cash or cans, bags of rice

Date: April 17th, 2017 in Giving, JABSOM News    Print or PDF

One in five people in Hawai’i does not have enough food to eat, according to the Hawai’i Foodbank. That’s the motivation behind the ongoing annual Foodbank Drive, and the University of Hawai’i John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) is involved. You can give cash, or food, and our JABSOM volunteers are making it easy for you to take part.

The deadline for monetary donations is Wednesday, April 26, as the 2017 Hawaiʻi Foodbank Drive gets underway at the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM). If you choose to give money, contact either Zaza Kalahiki or April McConnell in the Dean’s Office. Or give them at call at (808) 692-0899.

Or donate on line at www.hawaiifoodbank.org and select “DONATE”.

Donations of food are being accepted during the drive, with collection boxes in the Medical Education Building (MEB) Lobby or the Dean’s Office (MEB Room 223). The drive runs from April 12 through May 3, 2017 and here is the food needed the most:


    Canned tuna and chicken
    Canned Stew, Spaghetti and Chili
    Canned Vegetables
    Canned Fruit
