MANY KAʻŪ AND VOLCANO RESIDENTS IN FARMING, RANCHING, AND FOOD PREP are on the front line of keeping meals on tables during the COVID-19 pandemic. Farmers and ranchers, restaurateurs, food and pharmacy retailers, and workers who provide food to those in need; these people are considered essential under county, state, and federal directives during the pandemic, and are allowed to work outside their homes with safe practices. These people are going the extra mile to stay open. Some also provide gardening supplies and seeds for families to grow their own food.
     Providers are encouraged to email mahalo@aloha.net and kaucalendarnews@gmail.com to share information, to be added to the list, and to make changes or corrections to the information:

     Each pack contains approximately $15 worth of items for kids and young teens, including non-perishable foodstuffs (e.g. canned meats, packaged goods, snacks, cookies, fruit cups, juice, etc.) and curated coloring sheets, activities, and resources "to help children better understand the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as materials to support parents to engage their keiki and cope with the stresses of living through this pandemic." Each round of care packs is different; contents will vary based on what is available from local distributors and community partners.
     The Activate Hawaiʻi Aid website says, "We are constantly fundraising to support this program and would love for your kōkua. All coordination, packing, and distribution efforts are volunteered, which means all money donated to this program goes to care packs! You can either click here to donate via our fiscal partner or volunteer to help us with our hotline or packaging and distribution of packs by emailing us at aloha@activatehawaiiaid.org.
