This September, Foodland makes it easy to support your favorite local nonprofits with Give Aloha, an annual community matching gifts program that helps spread the aloha to charities important to its customers. Started in 1999, the program honors Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan, and continues his legacy of giving back to the community. To date, Give Aloha has raised more than $34 million, with more than $1.7 million raised last year alone.


During the month of September, customers are invited to make donations of up to $249 per organization at checkout to their favorite Hawai‘i nonprofit participating in the Give Aloha program. About 650 to 700 local organizations participate annually; click here for a list of this year’s participating nonprofits.


It’s Easy to Give!

Donations are accepted at any Foodland or Sack N Save at checkout, so just visit your neighborhood store to give. Foodland will match each donation up to a total of at least $250,000 for all organizations combined. Since 2004, the Western Union Foundation has been a program partner by providing additional matching funds of  $50,000 a year since 2014.

This year, Foodland has partnered with local artist Shar Tuiasoa of Punky Aloha to create a limited-edition Give Aloha canvas bag and pouch, available for purchase at Foodland locations! A portion of the proceeds will support participating Give Aloha nonprofits.


Plus, for a limited time only, every customer that makes a donation to Give Aloha or purchases the Give Aloha tote or bag will receive a Free Maika‘i hand sanitizer, too—just Foodland’s way of saying thanks for supporting our community.
