By developing innovative ways to provide quality, healthy food for free—so no one in our community goes hungry—The Pantry has become one of Hawaii’s largest food distribution services addressing the urgent issue of food insecurity.

PolioPlus Still Needs you!
An easy way to get funds to The Rotary Foundation to support the Polio Eradication efforts is to do it electronically.  Please consider asking friends and family to make a donation with you to PolioPlus through our club team page by going to :
Also, have you signed the PolioPlus Society pledge yet?  If not, would you consider pledging $100 per year to PolioPlus until polio is eradicated? 
Polio is a disease that has no cure and is totally preventable with vaccines.  We are so close to knocking this out, but until then, it's only a plane ride away from us and we need to vaccinate 400 million children each year in 60 countries to make sure they are protected.   
RI President Jennifer Jones announced that an additional $150 million was pledged and she iterated that ‘Rotary members have been at the center of the worldwide effort to eradicate polo for more than three decades. Rotary launched PolioPlus in 1985 and helped found the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) in 1988, where there were an estimated 350,000 polio cases across more than 125 countries in one year. Since then, cases have plummeted by more than 99.9%, sparing more than 20 million people from paralysis. Rotary has helped immunized nearly 3 billion children against polio, contributed more than US$2.6 billion to global polio eradication efforts and helped secure more than US$10 billion from donor governments.
Please make the pledge by completing this online form and making your donation to PolioPlus.
