NAWILIWILI — “Independent” and “individual” are keys to the strength of the Kauai Independent Food Bank as depicted in the trunk of the tree in its new logo unveiled Wednesday.
Designed by Jackie Kanna of j.kanna design, the logo appears on food collection signs at Kauai fire stations and in advertising touting the current food drive. It depicts the foundation as KIFB, with the trunk representing the “i” of independence and individuals, which feed the foundation and leads to the branches symbolizing the many programs.
Following Hurricane Iniki, there were two food banks on Kauai, said Rep. James Tokioka. One left, while the other, through the support of the community, remained.
KIFB is in the midst of its holiday food and fund drive, with a goal of $40,000 and 40,000 pounds of food. People can drop off their contributions of nonperishable food items to any of the Kauai fire stations, or at the KIFB facility in Nawiliwili through Dec. 31.
