Maui Food BankSpring 2016
Maui Food Bank is a food bank serving all of Maui County. The client originally came to us in need of assistance with their social media accounts. Since then we have worked on many projects for the client, including the design of a new custom website and management of their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
One of the special features of this website is the ability to make donations online. We set up a suite of custom online donation options for the Food Bank, which includes the option to donate to a special event or program, recurring monthly donations, and a “virtual food drive” where visitors can shop online for food donations.
Maui Food Bank continually impresses us with their innovative and impactful work in Maui County. The building itself is entirely solar-powered, and the food bank only uses 3% of all donations to take care of their overhead, including salaries. Considering their large warehouse and how well they treat their employees, that’s no simple task.
Technology Aloha first began handling Maui Food Bank’s Facebook and Twitter accounts in 2016. Per our suggestion, we created and now manage an Instagram account for them as well. This has been quite successful in increasing their brand awareness in a younger demographic.
An impressive and cutting-edge organization like Maui Food Bank needs a website just as impressive and efficient. That’s how we saw Maui Food Bank’s website redesign in Spring 2018. It was difficult to make even minor adjustments to the old website. We modernized the site to be very user-friendly, intuitive, and streamlined. We also emphasized ways to get involved and give to the food bank.
Because we manage Maui Food Bank’s social media, maintain their website, and create their event pages and donation forms, we’re able to coordinate efforts across a variety of channels to promote their events throughout the year. We track all their online donations and even offer a recurring donation option. Now that’s efficient.
