The Struggle is Real
A matter of human dignity.
At Kapi‘olani Community College, 40 percent of students recently reported going without meals, opting for tuition, books, rent, transportation and childcare, instead of saimin or rice.
Declining grades, self-esteem, mental health and physical well-being are only part of the picture. The impact of food insecurity reaches into the heart of our entire community.
This is why campus volunteers at the Pohukaina Food Pantry offer free bags of groceries each week to their fellow students. Your donations in the past year fed 5,000 of your future nurses, accountants, teachers and paramedics, your friends and neighbors.
We’re grateful for your compassionate support, and we’re just getting started.
Because nobody should have to choose between education and sustenance.
Will you help us to ensure our students have access to nutritious food and meals? Gifts of every amount make a difference - please make a gift today!
