Accessing the food vault
Food Vault Hawaiʻi is open for students in need of food and toiletries, but supplies are low. The food vault is asking anyone who can donate non-perishable food or toiletries to do so in order to help students in need during the stay-at-home order.
The pantry is stocked with non-perishable items and equipped with a student ID scanner. Students need to swipe to enter, but the food vault will not collect their personal information.
We are committed to protecting anonymity and will not receive student names or full ID numbers from the ID office. To those who are experiencing food insecurity, please come to use our service.
The Food Vault Hawaiʻi pantry is open three days a week in Hemenway 111.
- Monday: 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
- Thursday: Noon–4 p.m.
- Friday: 2 p.m.–6 p.m.
Items needed include “non-perishable, unexpired food in its original, undamaged, manufacturer packaging,” including canned fruit and vegetables, canned protein, complete meals, rice and pasta.
According to FVH all donations will stay within the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s student community.
To donate, contact the Office of Student Life and Development at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (808) 956-8178, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except holidays. The office is staffed and can arrange a receipt for donations at Campus Center room 208 during regular business hours.
