From the Honolulu-Star-Advertiser
Across the islands, 1 out of every 5 Hawaii residents depends on food aid from the Hawaii Foodbank and its network of agencies, a new report reveals. That's well above the national average of 1 in 7 people relying on food banks and feeding programs.
The sobering figures are contained in "Hunger in America 2014," billed as the most comprehensive study to date of domestic hunger relief programs. It was conducted by Westat, a social science research company, and published on Aug. 18 by Feeding America, a network of 200 food banks in all 50 states that is the nation's biggest provider of charitable food aid to the poor.
"The results from this historic study are truly alarming," said Bob Aiken, CEO of Feeding America, based in Chicago. "Many of the people we serve struggle not only to get enough to eat, but also to keep a roof over their heads, the lights on in their homes, and to cover their health care and medicine costs."
In Hawaii, 123,000 households, made up of 287,000 residents, receive food assistance annually from the Hawaii Foodbank and its affiliates, according to the report. They include nearly 48,000 children and 46,000 senior citizens. The elderly made up much of the throng at the Kakaako pantry this week.
"We are helping the underemployed, the disabled, our elderly, that's our biggest clientele," said Diana Lorenz, assistant director of Feeding Hawaii Together.org. "People that are living from paycheck to paycheck and having to make a decision on whether to pay rent or buy food."
In today’s legal and economic climate, protecting board members, staff and the organization itself from claims is critical. HANO provides low-cost, high-quality D&O insurance. Read More
