FAQS

How many times can I nominate someone?
You can nominate an individual once a week, each week of the promotion.

Can I nominate more than one individual?
Yes, you can nominate more than one individual. To do so, post a separate comment for each nomination and tag them on that week's Mahalo Meals post.

I would like to nominate someone, but they don't have an Instagram account. 
Can they still be nominated?
No. Social media is a key component of the #KeepHawaiiCooking program, with the Mahalo Meals phase facilitated on Instagram. In order to participate, you and your nominee must have an Instagram account. Yes, you can nominate more than one individual. To do so, post a comment for each nomination.


How are the recipients of Mahalo Meals selected each week?
The #KeepHawaiiCooking team will review and select 10 nominees each week. The selected nominees must complete an online eligibility form and provide the details necessary to schedule their delivery of Mahalo Meals to their department.


Why are only hospital workers and first responders included?
The Mahalo Meals phase of #KeepHawaiiCooking is just one way to provide support to both local restaurants and Hawaii’s caregivers. Our intent is to extend gratitude and kindness to these individuals who are working 24/7 on the frontlines to keep Hawaii safe and healthy.

How are restaurants selected to receive a Mahalo Meal grant?
The #KeepHawaiiCooking team will approach partner restaurants individually to fulfill meal orders and deliveries. The selected restaurants must complete an online eligibility form, agreeing to the program requirements before receiving a grant.


Are there restrictions on the hospitals and emergency response departments eligible for delivery?
Yes, there are limitations. At this time, we are considering the Acute Care Facilities listed on the 
Healthcare Association of Hawaii’s website, and police, fire and ambulance emergency response departments. The #KeepHawaiiCooking team will also work with partner restaurants to fulfill meal orders across the State as best as possible, but we are limited to the delivery radius of these restaurants.

How do I know this is not a scam?
If you are concerned, we ask you to visit our website at cpb.bank. You can find information there on #KeepHawaiiCooking powered by the CPB Foundation and also, information to contact Central Pacific Bank and the CPB Foundation directly.

The Keep Hawaii Cooking Story

On Friday, March 27, 2020, Central Pacific Bank and the Central Pacific Bank Foundation launched the #KeepHawaiiCooking initiative with the goal of supporting local restaurants, their employees and the community during this time of economic hardship caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The CPB Foundation committed to reimbursing 50 percent of the cost of takeout or delivery meals purchased from participating local restaurants up to $100,000 total.

In just three days, #KeepHawaiiCooking became a viral phenomenon on Hawaii social media, exceeding all expectations, and easily reached its $100,000 goal.

Recognizing the astounding success and the continued need for the program, CPB Foundation re-upped on their donation, and a new goal of sharing 10,000 meals was announced – a goal that was achieved in three days.

All told, the first two phases of #KeepHawaiiCooking resulted in at least 10,400 meals shared, which translated into $615,000 to local restaurants. Local diners were reimbursed almost $310,000 from the CPB Foundation.

But #KeepHawaiiCooking was never meant to be just another flash in the pan (pun intended.) Help keep the movement going by nominating a heroic hospital employee or first responder that is on the frontlines of the fight against the coronavirus. Selected nominees and their teams will receive up to 30 free Mahalo Meals in gratitude for their life-saving work.

We hope you will participate by nominating a hospital worker or emergency first responder for #KeepHawaiiCooking Mahalo Meals. And please help us share the #KeepHawaiiCooking story on your social channels.
