LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR March 2018 marked our fifth — and largest — Localicious® Hawai‘i campaign. Thanks to our Localicious® Leadership Council, chaired by Michelle Karr-Ueoka, Wade Ueoka and Troy Terorotua, the number of partnering restaurants climbed 50 percent from last year, and generated more than $65,000 in donations to support agricultural education in Hawai‘i’s public schools. Reaching a record 141 million people through various media outlets, Localicious® Hawai‘i is helping to frame the “buy local, eat local” trend and furthering the movement toward greater food sustainability. The campaign also underwrites educational programs that help students understand where food comes from and the important role farmers play in our community. These programs are the seeds from which will grow Hawai‘i’s next generation of farmers and agribusiness professionals. On behalf of the 2018 Localicious® Hawai‘i Leadership Council, campaign sponsors, and the entire team at the Hawai‘i Agricultural Foundation, thank you for your invaluable support.

Localicious® Hawai’i 2018 Annual Recap

For every dish sold, one dollar is donated to support HAF’s K-12 agricultural education programs in Hawai‘i’s public schools. These programs engage students in interactive ag- and science-focused activities and are designed to help foster a pipeline of new farmers and agribusiness men and women through standards-based curricula. Since the launch in 2014 of its first ag education initiative, Veggie U, HAF has continued to develop supplementary programs to create a continuum of K-12 agricultural education in the State’s traditional and charter public schools. As of School Year 2017-2018, collectively more than 9,000 students in hundreds of classrooms statewide have been introduced to, participated in, and benefitted from HAF’s K-12 education initiatives—all of which are made possible, in part, by the support of the Localicious® Hawai‘i community of restaurants.
