Rep. John Mizuno yesterday presented a certificate of appreciation to Chad Buck, president of the Hawaii Food Service Alliance, one of the state's largest distributors of bakery and dairy products. Buck donated 10,000 gallons of fresh milk to the Hawaii Food Bank. Since 2002, Buck has donated over 200,000 lbs of food to the food bank, making him the largest individual donor to the organization.
