Inkinen is assisting Maui Food Bank with their search for a Chief Executive Officer.


Established with a mission to alleviate hunger and food insecurity in Maui County, the Maui Food Bank (“MFB”) has been a vital force in addressing the nutritional needs of the community since its inception in 1994. The Maui Food Bank operates as a nonprofit organization committed to distributing nutritious food resources and support to individuals and families facing hunger countywide. Guided by the values of compassion, integrity, and aloha, the organization collaborates with local partners, businesses, donors, and volunteers to make a meaningful impact in the fight against food insecurity. With various programs to distribute food, such as: Aloha BackPack Buddies, Kupuna boxes, and Fresh 4 All, the Maui Food Bank plays a crucial role in addressing nutritional needs in Maui County through its strategic initiatives and community engagement.

Maui Food Bank has earned a strong reputation with key donors, vendors, agency partners, and community organizations in Maui County. It also has trusted, longstanding partnerships with Hawaii Foodbank and Feeding America, a national network of food banks.

Based in Wailuku, Maui’s business district, on the second most populated island in Hawaii, MFB has dedicated staff and experienced leadership team who are committed to its mission and community. On August 8, 2023, a devastating wildfire destroyed Lahaina town, in West Maui, and created a humanitarian crisis with catastrophic losses of housing, personal property, displacement of families, and disrupted economic activity. This tragedy occurred shortly after the COVID pandemic, which had already significantly increased food insecurity in the Maui County community. As a result, the need for MFB and its services has never been greater.

In response to the Lahaina fire, MFB received a tremendous influx of support from foundations and individual donors on Maui, the neighboring islands, and around the world. Through their generosity, MFB has the resources to pursue a bold vision to reimagine the local food system and end food insecurity in Maui County. MFB is poised to grow its team, improve its systems, and expand its infrastructure to pursue this vision.


The Maui Food Bank is currently in search of a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to lead the organization in its mission to combat food insecurity in the county. Qualified candidates will have a growth mindset and executive leadership experience in a non-profit organization, including working closely with a board of directors to craft an organization’s vision and strategic plan. Experience in food systems and food banking is preferred.

The CEO will be responsible for fostering relationships, building strategic partnerships, leading fundraising initiatives, and ensuring the efficient operation of the food bank. This executive role will lead and develop the team, steer the organization towards its goals, manage resources effectively, and build trust within the staff and community. The Chief Executive Officer will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the Maui Food Bank and advancing its commitment to creating a hunger-free Maui.
