2 food banks receive huge donations
LIHU‘E — The Hawai‘i Foodbank Kaua‘i Branch, including Branch Manager Wes Perreira and team accepted 600 bags of rice (each weighing 20 pounds) from Lesah Merritt and the Safeway store crew at Hokulei Village Shopping Center in Puhi Monday. The rice was donated by shoppers during the store’s RiceGiving drive last weekend at both the Kaua‘i Village store in Weipouli and Puhi store. Safeway is currently hosting its Hunger Bag drive that started last week. Shoppers are able to feed a family of four for a $10 contribution to the Hunger Bag.
