The County of Kaua‘i is pleased to announce a joint program with the Hawaii Foodbank Kaua‘i and the Kauai Independent Food Bank to provide 500 food packages every Saturday through May 30.

“We encourage any household who needs food to come out to our distribution in Kapa‘a. We understand that almost every household on Kaua‘i has been affected in one way or another by COVID-19,” said Director of Parks and Recreation Pat Porter. “If you are in need of food, please come to the county’s food distribution this Saturday.”
Distribution sites were selected based on geographical location and ability to accommodate all aspects of the distribution services, such as vehicle capacity, traffic flow, etc.
