Why Donate?

The Kauai Independent Food Bank is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that relies on tax-deductible monetary donations, grants, gifts, as well as perishable and non-perishable food donations. In order to support our operations and our program initiatives we maintain of a 4,000 square foot warehouse and a fleet of vehicles, including a refrigerated truck, delivery/pick-up vehicles, forklifts, pallet jacks and other necessary equipment for the efficient operation of the organization. We house a large walk-in refrigerator to store and display our perishable items. In addition to the operational needs we occasionally purchase food to meet specific needs of different agencies and communities.
