The Hawaii Foodbank Calendar of Events has also been updated. Check them out in the right-hand column of the blog. From the fliers I've seen in the elevators it looks like we're all going to have to make a mid-session resolution to shed the "legislative pounds". Items for sale include tacos, ice cream, root-beer floats, musubi, cupcakes and much, much more. That's just for March.
One lawmaker took a more "active" approach to raising funds for the Foodbank. Rep. Karl Rhoads is holding a Nerf Basketball Challenge throughout the month of March. Word is the grand prize Is Possibly Out of this Dimension. NAh...NO kidding? A bunch of gift certificates for Starbucks and Jamba Juice will be given to runner ups. Challenge is open to Capitol employees only.
