Compassion in Arts 2015

Aloha Harvest's 4th annual Compassion in Arts competition has begun and is open to middle and high school students.  All mediums will be accepted including paintings, video, photography, sculptures, dance, poetry and more. Deadline for submissions is Friday, October 3, 2015 to Aloha Harvest (3599 Waialae Avenue #23, Honolulu, HI, 96816).

Aloha Harvest is a non-profit organization that rescues quality, donated food and delivers it free of charge to social service agencies feeding the hungry in Hawai'i.  Mirrored after City Harvest in New York, Aloha Harvest is Hawaii's only Food Rescue Program and has been around for 15 years.  Since inception, we have rescued over 14 million pounds food that would have otherwise been thrown into our landfills. Over 170 social service nonprofits benefits from our free deliveries of food donations feeding thousands each month. Events like Compassion in Arts not only brings awareness to what we do but also enables the younger generation to explore this social issue.
