The drive-through Food Distribution, at 780 Onehee Ave. across from Maui Waena School, is open to the public. It begins at 9 a.m. and continues until the supplies of hot food, produce and assorted groceries run out.

For traffic flow purposes, vehicles must enter Onehee Avenue by turning right from South Papa Avenue.  Kea Street between Papa Avenue and Holua Drive will be closed from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  Please do not block driveways and line up as directed by the Maui Police Department and the Hawaiʻi National Guard.
