Feeding The Hungry
Connecting with our roots in kalihi
Established in 1998, Feeding the Hungry (FTH) is STN’s oldest outreach. We began with delivering food boxes out of a small van to seven families living in Kalihi. Today, the FTH Kalihi distribution provides food for over 600 families every Thursday. Each week, team of Surfing The Nations volunteers distributes around 25 – 30,000 pounds of food weekly provided by the Hawaii Foodbank and Aloha Harvest. Feeding The Hungry has two main goals – meet the physical needs of people in our community, and also build relationships with each recipient to leave them feeling loved and valued. We believe that everyone deserves to be noticed and treated with dignity and joy.
Ulu Pono Kids
“To Thrive on a Righteous Path”
Ulu Pono is a Hawaiian phrase translated as “To Thrive on a Righteous Path”, which is the name of our K-12 youth program. We’re passionate about seeing the keiki (kids) of Hawaii reach their full potential by creating an environment where they are encouraged in their learning, character, and talents. At Ulu Pono, our kids receive free homework help, art lessons by skilled artists, dance classes, and character development from consistent, loving staff members. We believe that in affirming our local youth’s worth, value, and talent, they will rise up to be leaders for the islands.
