well done serving 1.5 million meals during the decades! Cheers!

Hale Kau Kau offers a range of services to the South Maui Community intended to "Serve with Compassion and Aloha" we seek to connect with the Home Bound population as well as those in need, without discrimation.


Serving the Homebound

As of 2020 Hale Kau Kau delivers through the assistance of our volunteer drivers a total of more than 90 meals each afternoon to our Home Bound residents of South Maui. The meal consists of a hot entree, salad, vegetable, fruit, dessert, a bread, and an additional starch.  Each meal is designed to provide approximately 1500 calories and address general nutritional needs.

Are you unable to prepare your own meals or shop for food items?

As we age, some activities become more difficult. At times we experience health issues, temporary or chronic which affect our ability to provide for ourselves basic needs surrounding shopping and preparing meals. If this is the case, and you are unsure as to what to do about this problem, or know someone who may be at risk you have several options available to you. 

  • Check with your doctor to see what services may be available to you in the form of caregivers, hospice, or meal delivery. If they are unable to give you specific information - 
    • Talk to the Maui County Office on Aging to see what options you have available to you. 
    • Open a dialogue with your insurance carrier, HMSA, Kaiser, Alohacare, or United Health all partner with Hale Kau Kau to ensure that the needs of our Maui Home Bound are being met.


Serving the Hungry and the Needy

Each day of the week Hale Kau Kau serves a hot meal to the hungry and the needy from our kitchen located at 25 W. Lipoa Street in Kihei. On the property of St. Theresa's church, we welcome as Stewards all those who are in need of a hot, nutritious meal. We offer a wide range of delicious options each day, including an entree, salad, starch, dessert and drink. For the convenience of our diners we have a number of picnic tables available to eat, a sink for washing up, and the good company of all those who join us each day. 


This institution is an equal opportunity provider

Our Core Values


Every faculty you have, your power of thinking or of moving your limbs from moment to moment, is given you by God. If you devoted every moment of your whole life exclusively to His service, you could not give Him anything that was not in a sense His own already. 

– C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
