Nourishing and Uplifting Families
We’re honored to announce a new partnership with Make-A-Wish Hawaii®, whose mission is to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Bite Squad is providing funds to support the nourishment of local and visiting wish families during hospital stays and treatments.
“With Bite Squad’s help, we can uplift and unite families by providing great meals beyond the hospital cafeteria,” says Arden Salassa, Corporate Relations Manager for Make-A-Wish Hawaii.
It’s our business here at Bite Squad to deliver food that people love, and we’re honored for the opportunity to serve Hawaii wish families. From a slice of their favorite local pizza, to a familiar meal from a well-loved restaurant, it’s our pleasure to deliver a bit of food love to these children and families in need.
Make-A-Wish Hawaii is among the busiest wish chapters in the nation. With a trip to Hawaii being the number two requested wish in the world, the local chapter hosts 1,200 visiting wish families every year. And more than 1,300 local Hawaii families have been touched by a wish, like 17-year-old Pomai, who wished to have a Harry Potter-themed hideaway.
“On average, it takes more than 200 people coming together to make one wish possible,” says Salassa. “It’s truly a community effort.”
