Volunteers sought for surplus food distribution on Lanai

May 16, 2022

Maui Economic Opportunity’s Lana‘i Branch needs volunteers to assist with the monthly surplus food distribution to residents in need.

The distribution at the MEO office at 1144 Ilima Ave., No. 102, usually occurs at mid-morning on the third Thursday of the month. However, due to last minute changes in the shipping schedule to the island recently, this week’s distribution could be held on Friday, May 20, said Rose Jane Ancheta, Lana‘i Branch manager.

Volunteers will be asked to unload crates, pack food packages and assist during the distribution and be able to lift up to 50 pounds. They also will have to complete a training program.

Those interested in supporting the food distribution on Lana‘i, should call Ancheta at (808) 565-6665.
