The Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation (HAF) invites the public to join a conversation on “School Lunch - Hawai‘i’s Farm to School Initiative” for their second EAT THINK DRINK presented by Hawaiian Airlines. On Tuesday, April 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. at THE MODERN HONOLULU, thought leaders and policymakers in agriculture will share their knowledge, experience and thoughts on food and education as they examine meals served in school cafeterias. The keynote speaker is Ann Cooper, a celebrated author, chef, educator and prominent national advocate for better school lunch programs.
Get your taste buds ready! Hawaii Agricultural Foundation (HAF) is kicking off the fourth annual Localicious Hawaii campaign and working with more than 150 chefs throughout the state. During the month of March, participating restaurants will designate one or more menu items that incorporate locally grown, caught or raised products as Localicious dishes.
For every dish sold, $1 is donated for the expansion of Hawaii’s Veggie U educational program.
More people are interested in agriculture and farming than ever, and many are seeking to buy and eat locally grown food and specialty products. While this provides a great opportunity for local growers, the terms describing our food and it’s production are still easily and often mis-used. Here’s the quick and dirty on what you need to know on your locally grown food journey!
Mark your calendars! During the month of September 2016, Hawai‘i Agricultural Foundation is participating in Give Aloha, Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program. Use your Maika‘i Card and our organization code number:78641 to make your donation to support agricultural education and Foodland will match 20% - 25%!
