Maui’s Lahaina Gateway Restaurants Partnered with The Salvation Army to Feed 125 Local Families
During a special event this week, 125 families in Lahaina received free meals from Teddy’s Bigger Burgers, Da Shrimp Hale and Moku Roots in a partnership between Lahaina Gateway and The Salvation Army.
“This has been a trying year for many in our community and we wanted to create an opportunity to give back and spread some holiday cheer,” said Diana Whitt, General Manager at Lahaina Gateway, West Maui’s largest outdoor shopping center. “We couldn’t be more grateful to our restaurant owners who generously contributed to make this happen!”
Each meal was made to feed up to four people. Teddy’s Bigger Burgers prepared gourmet burgers and tater tots; Da Shrimp Hale cooked up chicken wings, rice and corn; and Moku Roots featured its famous taro burgers and burritos. Staff from Lahaina Gateway along with volunteers from The Salvation Army were on hand to deliver the meals with smiling faces on Dec. 22.
“We are very grateful to Lahaina Gateway and their restaurants for helping to Rescue Christmas for those in need in our communities,” said Envoy Kevin Nagasaki with The Salvation Army’s Lahaina Lighthouse Corps.
