Dine Out and Donate: Buy a meal, donate a meal

Local restaurants help feed those in need

While the pandemic has caused a lot of uncertainty for many around the world, one positive thing that’s come from it is the amount of aloha people are showing each other. Hawaii News Now has partnered with with six Oahu eateries in its “Dine Out and Donate” program to help feed those in need.
