Why November especially matters to Mana Foods…

It’s so very important to us to make sure that we continue to give back to our wonderful community. Which is why we’re so proud to be donating all of November’s Bag Credit earnings to Maui Youth & Family Services.

Maui Youth & Family Services in a nutshell…

"MYFS was established in 1978 by Maui County as the Maunaolu Youth Residential Shelter to provide a safe place for Maui’s homeless, abused and runaway children. Incorporated as a private non-profit agency in 1982, MYFS has expanded to include a range of behavioral and mental health programs to support young people and their families’ personal growth and emotional stability."
