KS to match meal costs with donation to Hawaiʻi Foodbank thru May 31

May. 7, 2020

Oʻahu science kumu Clifford Lim recently got a surprise lunch delivery from celebrity Kelly Hu KSK’86. The actress, who has starred opposite Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Scorpion King and as Lady Deathstrike in X-Men 2, visited Lim’s home as part of her support for Kamehameha Schools’ Buy One, Feed One kōkua movement (BOFO Hawaiʻi) designed to help KS restaurant tenants and the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the help of friends, Hu delivered a meal from KS Kakaʻako tenant Highway Inn while on Instagram Live.

Lim was thrilled with the visit. “Wow, I can’t believe I’m talking to Kelly Hu!” he said as he picked up his young son Steven to say hello.

COVID-19 has divided our population into categories of employed, essential, unemployed and forgotten. BOFO Hawaiʻi supports participating KS restaurant tenants who are struggling durring this difficult time, and involves people helping people through acts of kindness and gratitude. It encourages those who are currently ordering takeout food to consider buying a second meal for someone impacted financially, socially or emotionally by the fallout of the pandemic.

“I love that I was able to do this for a teacher who is doing his best to teach his students while caring for his three-year-old son and parents,” Hu said. “If that doesn’t say superhero to you, I don’t know what does!”

The delivery happened to coincide with Teacher Appreciation Week so Hu expressed her gratitude and appreciation for the teachers of the world who have turned their homes into classrooms.

The BOFO Hawaiʻi movement is a very personal one and provides instant gratification to those who can help. All photos and videos of meal donations posted to social media and tagged with @BOFOHawaii, #BOFOHawaii and #BuyOneFeedOne will be verified, and KS will make a matching dollar donation to the Hawai‘i Foodbank at the end of May.

Anyone can participate. Follow @BOFOHawaii on Facebook and Instagram to see the movement in action.
