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.

Our Mission
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. 


Hale Kau Kau Happenings: A Calendar of Events






Are you looking to find purpose, meaning, or a way to leverage your impact on your community through using your time, talent, or treasure?

Hale Kau Kau offers several avenues of service that you can participate in to find this fulfillment and become a Hale Kau Kau Champion.

First, discover volunteering. Bring your time and talent to the kitchen, a driving route, or the office. See what we do, and why we do it. Maybe you’ll discover a hidden calling, ability, or skill, or even some lasting friendships.

Second, Give. Every $100 dollar gift purchases approximately 200 meals. Or 150 lbs. of rice. Or 50 lbs of chicken. And innumerable smiles. Consider becoming a sustaining giver.

Third, become a Champion. Share our story with your colleagues, friends, neighbors.

Partner with us in feeding the hungry of South Maui by letting your community know how we are changing lives. Help them become Champions too!
