Communities Rally to Support Federal Workers

By Dan Harrang, PHSS, Maui County

     While working on-the-line during the recent Government shutdown I heard many of the traveling public thanking USDA employees for working diligently without pay. Their awareness of our plight -and gratitude for our unending service- is meaningful. There were days when I was personally thanked approximately three times every hour! And while kind words can and do bolster morale they don’t put food on our plates.

     Thankfully, many in our community stepped forward to help feed Federal employees and our families. I first became aware of this when local business Maui Fresh Streatery delivered numerous plate lunches to Federal workers at OGG and began a program at their food truck allowing the public to purchase meals in advance for anyone in need.

Celebrations Catering serves TSA workers

     Another blessing came to OGG on January 23rd when, through the outreach program of Grace Church, USDA LA’s Louis Romero, Fred Asuncion, Ken Nakano, Arlene Richardson, Tracy Silva, Gloria Vierra and Krisan Tamaye came together to facilitate the delivery to USDA Base 1 hundreds of pounds of food, all free to Federal employees. Kula Country Farms provided cases of strawberries, ~100 pounds of Maui onions and many heads of cabbage. Among the shelf-stable foods available were tuna fish, peanut butter, SPAM, beans, canned pork, soups, broths, cereals, ramen and much more. Paper towels, cling-wrap and napkins were also available.

     On Saturday, January 26th Bev Gannon of Hali’imaile General Store sent her Celebrations catering service to OGG and provided a very generous meal to countless airport workers. That day I spoke with Rebecca Schillaci, Chief Operations Officer, who told me the delicious spread was Thanksgiving themed in part by their gratitude for our weeks of continued service, despite not knowing when next we might be paid. Rebecca went on to say about this event, “It really was our pleasure. “This is what makes America great again… being a community.” An abundance of dinner rolls and salad, herbed stuffing, seasoned, roasted pork, turkey (with optional gravy), cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, gourmet cookies, tea and more were provided along with napkins, to-go plates and plastic ware. My next fancy dinner out will support this business which clearly is community-oriented and empathetic to our citizens in their times of need.

  Even other Federal employees were supportive of USDA during this interruption of financial compensation. On Friday the 25th Dennis Nelson and his staff at TSA-Maui surprised us with nearly a dozen Costco pizzas, complemented by boxes of Krispy Kreme for dessert! Receiving a few free meals, like this one, turned out to be a big help in stretching my food budget.

  Additionally the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation in conjunction with Maui County Food Bank held a drive January 31st from8AM to 5PM curbside of the ticket lobby. Volunteers donated rice, canned goods and other nonperishable items to help nourish Federal workers in mind, body and soul.

  Seeing various individuals and organizations come together to assist Federal employees during the recent government shutdown strengthens my faith in our collective good, as well as my confidence in the people of  Maui to weather any storms that come our way. After all, we’re all in this together. Aloha and Mahalo!

Hali’imaile General Store celebrates 30 years in business on Maui by collecting and matching donations to Boys and Girls Club of Maui at Bev Gannon Restaurants

Chef Owner Beverly Gannon continues her contribution to the Maui community through a community fundraising effort for Boys and Girl’s Club of Maui.

Makawao, Maui, Hawaii— September 27, 2018 This October, Hali’imaile General Store will begin a year of celebration to mark their 30th year in business on Maui. They will celebrate this momentous anniversary by creating a donation matching program for restaurant guests at Hali’imaile General Store and Gannon’s Restaurant.

“The success of Hali’imaile General Store for so many years is attributed to giving the customer what they want. Over the years “The Store” has developed into a beautiful comfortable restaurant. Our guests wanted high quality, uncomplicated delicious food. We were more than happy to deliver!” said Beverly Gannon, Chef and Owner of Hali’imaile General Store.

Donations to benefit Boys and Girl’s Club of Maui

Between the dates of October 1st and October 31st 2018, please visit either Hali’imaile General Store or Gannon’s Restaurant and donate any amount from $5 and up and receive the equivalent amount in Bev’s Bucks to use on your next visit.

($750 value). The party must be booked in the month of October for a future event.

Humble Beginnings

Although Bev and Joe selected the location of HGS because of it’s proximity to their home, their original concept was a take away deli and a kitchen to serve their growing catering company. “On our opening night, October 14, 1988, 150 people came to the door requesting a seat! They wanted a restaurant! I had never worked in a restaurant in my life! I had only one bartender and two cooks – no servers or dishwashers. We all looked at each other and knew the next day things had to change. On October 15, 1988, Hali’imaile General Store became a restaurant.” Gannon remarks. From that humble start, Hali’imaile General Store now seats 150 guests, with plans to expand an outdoor space for private events.
