Hāliimaile Community Garden Partner Organizations
Hale Kau Kau
The vision of Bill and Pam Schwartau for a garden space that provides fresh, organic produce to Hale Kau Kau, a meal program that provides a hot dinner every night to those who need it, led to Hāliimaile Community Garden's Goodwill Garden program and partnership with Hale Kau Kau.. Donations of salad fixings, herbs, and vegetables from the garden help the Hale Kau Kau provide fresh, healthy produce one night each week.

Maui Food Bank
Since April of 2013, Hāliimaile Community Garden has partnered with the Maui Food Bank to bring much needed fresh produce to the less fortunate on Maui. Weekly donations of squash and other items from the garden help the Maui Food Bank provide fresh, healthy produce to Maui organizations who distribute food and prepare meals.
Feed My Sheep
Feed My Sheep partnered with Hāliimaile Community Garden in September of 2016. They are a unique mobile food distribution program. They take their distribution to neighborhoods of need each week, passing out bags of groceries to anyone who needs their help. Each month they give 69,000 half-pound meals. In the last year, they have given food to 3,200 people, including working but poor families, seniors on fixed incomes, and homeless men and women. They provide emotional support by offering a listening ear and prayer so that recipients can experience love and not judgement in their time of need.
