About Aloha Harvest
Partnering with you to feed the hungry and homeless on Oahu.

Office Hours - Mon - Fri 9am - 5:30pm
Food Delivery - Seven Days a Week

Aloha Harvest picks up excess quality food from restaurants, hotels, food distributors, catering events, food drives, and others events and delivers this food 'free of charge' to social service agencies that feed the hungry and homeless on Oahu.


Aloha Harvest is a non-profit organization that gathers quality, donated food and delivers it "free of charge" to social service agencies feeding the hungry in Hawai‘i. This innovative concept first proved successful in New York City with the 1982 City Harvest project. In 1999, the Hau‘oli Mau Loa Foundation asked founder, Helen ver Duin Palit, to study the feasibility of bringing the City Harvest concept to O‘ahu. Based on discussions with potential food donors, recipients, and community leaders, her study concluded that the island definitely needed a reliable link between businesses that wanted to donate good, perishable food and social service agencies with clients to feed. Thus, Aloha Harvest was established in November 1999 to fulfill this need.

In November 2009, Aloha Harvest celebrated its 10th Anniversary. Since its inception Aloha Harvest has collected and distributed over 4.6 million pounds of food which now includes quality perishable and non-perishable foods, as well as beverages. The food has been donated by over 650 participating donors such as restaurants, caterers, government facilities, hotels, food distributors and others. Aloha Harvest has many regular donors and is also called whenever there is leftover, wholesome food or when food products are close to their expiration dates. This food would otherwise be discarded and gone to waste.

Aloha Harvest is environmentally and economically minded and our program prevents waste, recycles and meets the needs of literally thousands who are facing hunger daily. Aloha Harvest has both a refrigerated truck and van to promptly transport the food to approved, charitable food providers on Oahu. (Aloha Harvest does not store any food.) Strict standards for food safety are applied throughout the entire process. Aloha Harvest has never had any complaints about the safety of the food delivered. It also receives donations from special projects such as Food Drives organized by schools, businesses, organizations, and churches. Further, Aloha Harvest offers pick-up and delivery service year-round, 7 days a week, completely free of charge.

No other organization on O‘ahu provides such a service. Aloha Harvest is operated by a small, qualified group of three full-time and two part-time employees. The full-time staff include Executive Director, Ku‘ulei Williams and weekday drivers, Dwayne Corpuz and Kawehe Brown. The part-time staff are -- Greg Nacapoy (Saturday driver) and Jayson Canoneo (Sunday driver).
