Kūpuna Food Security Coalition After Action Report

The Kūpuna Food Security Coalition (“KSFC” or “Coalition”) is a cross-sectoral partnership formed at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to address food insecurity needs of O’ahu’s kūpuna. While their founding began as an emergency response to kūpuna food needs, they are shifting towards long-term food system solutions and sustainability.

The Kūpuna Food Security Coalition After Action Report serves as a planning tool and reference guide for stakeholders, policy makers, funders, and businesses who work with kūpuna health and wellbeing. The report describes the Coalition’s structure and organization, documents data and trends of their program, and highlights lessons learned and future recommendations.

From March 2020 to December 2020, the Coalition:

  • Distributed over 1.2 million meals for up to 8,000 kūpuna each week
  • Provided education to 2,500 seniors around SNAP* and other food program options
  • Provided 30,000 wrap-around health and social services

Some recommendations include:

  • Sustain critical food security and nutrition services
  • Provide additional technical assistance and resources to coalition members
  • Foster creativity and innovation in addressing kūpuna food security
  • Broaden awareness and recognition of coalition member efforts

*Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
