    Teresa and Randy Nero came up with a special COVID-19 fabric face mask they presented to Shereen Ho‘opi‘i and her Lili‘uokalani Trust crew for them to use during the food distribution Thursday in Lihu‘e.

The giveaway is when a worker at Mark’s Place wants to take your picture. Not only does Mark Oyama and his ‘ohana of Mark’s Place give a heaping helping of misoyaki fish as part of the kupuna special (yes, you need to be kupuna age) Thursday, there were those waiting to pick up their orders who got their photos taken, and the meal (for some, it lasted for the meal and a half, or more) was taken care of. Kudos to the angel(s) who “pay it forward” (it started from when Mark’s Place started the kupuna special) and take care of all those kupuna who are pleasantly surprised. OK, check out Mark’s Place website for menus for Tuesday and Thursday menu (from 9 to 10 a.m.).
