Maui Food Bank merriman's "blue hawaii"

Event raises $60,000 for The Maui Food Bank

In September 2015, Merriman’s Kapalua hosted “Blue Hawaii”, a fundraiser for the Maui Food Bank’s Aloha Backpack Buddies program, a program that provides backpacks filled with nutritious meals for children who are at risk of going hungry when no school-based meals are available. The event raised enough money to provide 11,000 (one full year) of backpacks filled with food for children in need living in Maui County. Chef Peter Merriman’s personal philosophy is summed up in his observation, “At Merriman's, we believe in sharing our success and giving back to our local communities. Hawaii has been good to us, and we want to be good to Hawaii.”
