HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Palama Settlement and The Clarence T.C. Ching Foundation partnered to distribute food boxes to hundreds of Kalihi-Palama residents on Saturday, May 8, to celebrate Mother’s Day.

The food boxes contained two frozen chickens, noodles, eggs, vegetables, fresh fruit and bread.

Community members stopped by the Palama Settlement at 810. N. Vinyard Blvd. for the food boxes and care packages on Saturday, May 8, after making reservations.

The Clarence T.C. Ching Foundation’s executive director says the event was the perfect opportunity to support the Kalihi-Palama community.

“We are so grateful to The Clarence T.C. Ching Foundation for giving Palama Settlement the opportunity to provide these boxes to hundreds of our community residents. During these difficult times, we here at Palama Settlement have seen the need for basic necessities on the rise. We are determined to do our part and continue to support those with the greatest needs in our community in every possible way.” — Anna Streegan Stone, Program Administrator for Palama Settlement

“This food distribution was the perfect opportunity for the Ching Foundation to support residents in the Kalihi and Palama neighborhoods. It is the mission of this foundation to assist in the care of those in need, and it was an honor to partner with Palama Settlement on this project.” — Tertia Freas, Executive Director of The Clarence T.C. Ching Foundation
