Nani Maikui helped distribute more than 2,000 pounds of food on Thursday, Sept. 16, outside Maui Economic Opportunity offices in Kaunakakai. MEO runs the federal surplus food distribution, part of SNAP, every third Thursday of the month. The Maui Food Bank ships food to Molokai for distribution; Molokai and Maui farmers also contribute fresh produce. More than 1,100 pounds of nonperishable and 1,000 pounds of perishables, including fruits, vegetables and cheese, went out in the drive-thru distribution. In addition, 54 boxes of food were handed out to kupuna.
