  Mission Statement

Mission StatementMISSION:
The mission of the Kauai Independent Food Bank (KIFB) is to educate, provide nutritious food for the hungry, and respond to emergencies.

Food security for all the people of Kauai and Ni'ihau is the ultimate goal of the KIFB and is demonstrated through numerous programs providing services to our communities:   

In collaboration with the Kauai Boys and Girls Club's KIFB supports the Westside Keiki Cafe Program sponsored by Dupont Pioneer Foundation, YWCA/ Kama'aina Kids/including the Elementary schools and the Eastside BackPack Program, and the Lihue Keiki Cafe Program.


he KIFB's senior program Kupa'a Kokua Kupuna offers seniors the opportunity to aquire Kauai grown fresh produce, fruits, bakery items and canned goods and other nutrious foods monthly. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday from 12pm-3pm.

In addition KIFB provides emergency food distribution, a Vocational Rehabilitation Program and disaster prepardness.

Ni'ihau BackPack Program
- In collaboration with Kula Aupuni Ni'ihau A Kahelelani Aloha Public Charter School, the Ke Kula Ni'ihau O Kekaha Learning Center Public Charter School in Kekaha, and Anahola, they distribute backpacks filled with nutritious food each Friday to approximately 100 keiki for a 43 week program from August to May.  The nutritious food in the backpack is frequently the primary food for the child and his/her siblings over the weekend.


In the implementation of these programs, our values and priorities reflect the ancient Hawaiian customs of aloha, kupono (honesty), hanohano (dignity), hui (partnership), lokahi (unity), kuha'o (self-reliance) and ha'aah'a (humility).

Through the generous involvement and support of the citizens of Kauai, the Kauai Independent Food Bank will continue to create, develop and establish programs to support the families of our communities.
