The Nanawale Community Center is making strides to help the Big Island community by setting up a mini pantry with fresh produce.
The center is distributing it to anyone who needs it.
All the produce was donated by neighbors helping neighbors, like Pacifica Sele and her husband who donated boxes of fresh bananas.
"Most of the people I heard have no power, stuff like they can't use power to cook, so bananas. No need to cook. It's ripe and it's ready to eat," said Sele.
"We need fresh produce for the vegetarians. We are one of the communities that's servicing all. We are not turning down anybody. We are receiving what's coming here and giving out," said Rhonda Gonsalves who runs the pantry.
Organizers only ask that those who use the pantry only visit it once a day.
The center is accepting donations of fresh fruit during the hours from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.
