The Wave Foundation is stepping up to support displaced families impacted by the devastating fires on Maui. Our partners are donating healthy and culturally relevant food and other supplies that we are sending via airline and shipping vessels. Crisis relief expert, Bobby Rodrigo-We Do Better Relief, is supporting these efforts on our behalf and collaborating daily with several community members and organizations in Maui to ensure the food and supplies are being distributed and deployed.
Your generous funding will help us support these efforts, help pay for shipping costs, and purchase additional food/resources for community members impacted by the devastation.
The Wave Foundation strengthens community health, local economies, and environmental sustainability. Our work touches an array of interrelated sectors: food, energy, transportation, zero waste, and clean air and water. At the center of our Food Program are partnerships led by Indigenous communities to restructure the food supply chain guided by the imperative for food that is local, nutritious, culturally appropriate—and distributed equitably. We listen to the First peoples of this land, whose focus has forever been on sustainability and stewardship. The Wave Foundation’s ultimate goal is to help establish community based and community driven food systems that allow communities to move towards food sovereignty. The Wave Foundation is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and we are based in Oregon. Learn more about us here.
