This volunteer opportunity aligns with our Ka Lama Ku value Mālama - "Taking care of others and community." Leaders demonstrate care for the land, family, and/or spirituality. This is often through civic and social engagement. Leaders have deep respect and honor for others and accept their responsibilities unconditionally. The purpose of this event is to understand food insecurity, how it affects our community, get to be a part of a positive change for our community.
