Can you imagine what it’s like to stress about how you will be able to feed your family? Unfortunately, that’s not an imaginary situation for the many federal workers affected by the partial federal shutdown. Kauai Independent Food Bank is launching their Spring Food Drive early to help Kauai’s TSA and Coast Guard employees whose paychecks have stopped because of the continuing government shutdown. Now through April 30th non-perishable food donations may be dropped off at any County Fire Station on Kauai. Monetary donations and food items will also be gratefully accepted at the Nawiliwili warehouse from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Federal workers and their families are invited to visit the Nawiliwili warehouse from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, to get the resources they need. For further information, please contact Leona Perez at (808) 246-3809, ext. 2. We thank you so much for your Kokua!
