Yahoo! Sports reported earlier today that Mariota will be part of an effort to provide 1,000 meals a day in Honolulu, Hawaii. Mariota was quoted via the Honolulu Star Advertiser:

“I’ve been very blessed to be put in a position to help and I think that is a responsibility of mine.

Newly signed Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Marcus Mariota’s Motiv8 Foundation will join with other community entities in underwriting 1,000 free grab-and-go meals a day Monday through Friday for at least 43 days at Kauluwela and Palolo Elementary Schools during the COVID-19 shutdown.

Beginning Monday and running until at least April 30, public school students 18 and younger may pick up breakfast from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. and lunch from 11:30 a.m. to noon (excluding Good Friday), officials announced today.

The program will be extended through the end of the school year on May 29 if necessary, depending on the state Department of Education’s school schedule.

Meals will be prepared by ABC Stores and Bamboo Catering. Volunteers with the Center for Tomorrow’s Leaders and others will distribute meals, with guidance from the DOE to ensure proper handling and safety. Three hundred breakfasts and 300 lunches will be distributed each day at Kauluwela and 200 breakfasts and 200 lunches daily at Palolo.”

Say what you want about the Raiders bringing in Mariota to be a quarterback on the team, the man’s stepping up to do his part.
