In less than a week, local families joined with Central Pacific Bank and Central Pacific Bank Foundation’s #KeepHawaiiCooking initiative to achieve a goal of 10,000 meals shared with the community, by splitting the bill and covering 50 percent of the tab for food ordered from favorite local restaurants.

The program, which launched on March 27, reached its initial goal to reimburse a total of $100,000 for takeout, drive-thru and home delivered meals from participating restaurants in just three days. The initiative was extended to allow for even more participation, by committing to 10,000 meals, totaling more than $300,000 in donations by April 1.
