Eat Local, Buy Local
The month of March is a busy one for me with a couple of special projects on the books. One of them is working with Localicious Hawaii! They promote participating restaurants who are committed to buying local and features a “Localicious Dish”. During the month of March buying that dish supports AG education in our public schools (Veggie U Kit). Every “Localicious Dish” ordered, the restuarant will donate $1!
Localicious Hawaii is a part of the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation who’s mission is:
“to support and sustain Hawaii’s agricultural industry by addressing critical needs and services of farmers and the agricultural industry in Hawaii, and by better connecting the farmers with the community and vice-versa. This involves educational and outreach programs in the community, as well as direct marketing, technical, educational and in-the-field support for farmers.”
Our goal is to at least raise $500, which will go toward adopting a school wanting a Veggie U kit. The kits will help teachers in our public schools inspire young future farmers!Help teachers in our public schools inspire young future farmers! #LocaliciousHI #EatLocal #BuyLocal Click To Tweet
Being a father and a chef that has a passion for cooking with locally grown and raised food, this sits right with me. I hope you take time this month to visit any of the great restaurants involved, enjoy a great meal made with a locally grown product and know you are also supporting our future farmers of Hawaii.
