The County of Maui partnered with Pukalani Superette and Sysco Hawaii to provide bags of produce to 300 families today in Upcountry Maui.
The food distribution is the first in a series of COVID-19 relief programs the County is coordinating in various communities.
“We are so grateful for our partners who worked to organize this effort and provide food for our families,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “It was very clear from today’s turnout that this assistance is much-needed in our community.
“We look forward to doing more of these efforts across the county to provide direct assistance to our people.”
The event, which offered drive-through produce pick-up in the Pukalani Pool parking lot, distributed all donations in just over one hour.
Agencies and businesses who wish to partner in relief efforts should contact the Office of the Mayor at (808) 270-7855.
