Ewa FCU FoodbankSponsored by the Ewa Plantation Company, Ewa Federal Credit Union was chartered on February 5, 1937 to serve the Ewa Plantation workers. After 80 years of sugar cane production, Ewa Plantation Company closed its doors, merging with another sugar company, and sponsorship of the credit union was turned over to Oahu Sugar Company. Ewa FCU continued to serve the plantation employees and their families until Oahu Sugar’s shutdown in 1995. The credit union’s Field of Membership was formally amended in 1996 to incorporate the Ewa Villages Community Association comprised of the residents living within distinct boundary lines surrounding the Ewa Villages. In  2015, Ewa FCU converted to a community charter to serve the Ewa Neighborhood Board No.23, encompassing both the Ewa Villages and Ewa Beach communities.
