MHLA distributes 16K pounds of rice
The Maui Hotel & Lodging Association distributed 16,800 pounds of rice on Maui, Molokai and Lanai last month through its annual “Rice for the Holidays” program.
The program began in 2009 when the association partnered with Trilogy Excursions for its annual distribution of turkeys to Lanai residents. The association added a five-pound bag of rice to go with each turkey. Since then, the Rice for the Holidays program has expanded to provide rice for distribution on Maui and Molokai.
The association partners with many of its members and other community associations for the annual food distribution, including Trilogy Excursions, Young Brothers, Lanai City Service, Molokai Island Foundation and Feed My Sheep.
