Feeding with Compassion and Aloha
Who We Are
'Hale', the Hawaiian word meaning 'house', and 'Kau Kau' (a Hawaiian pidgin word) meaning 'chow'. Founded by a diverse group of South Maui individuals in August of 1991, these founders decided to build upon an unnamed, but very active, meal program serving the hungry. Hale Kau Kau still continues this service today at Saint Theresa Church.
To alleviate hunger by providing nutritious meals to the hungry and homebound in a safe, loving, and supportive environment.
What We Do
Every night of the year we serve a free, hot, nutritious meal unconditionally- no questions asked- to anyone who comes to our kitchen at meal time.
Every night of the year we deliver a free, hot nutritious meal to the elderly, ill, and disabled homebound clients in South Maui.
In collaboration with Keolahou Hawaiian Congregational Church, we distribute weekly food baskets and emergency food supplies to families in crisis.
