Learn how you can eat local

Join us and eat local

E ‘ai kākou! We invite you to join us in supporting local farmers, fishers, food makers, restaurants, and others tied to Hawai‘i’s food system. There are many ways you can “eat local,” but what does that really mean? Find out how by browsing the resources below to find a list of food hubs, CSAs and recipes to try with your ‘ohana.

Locally sourced food: Food grown, raised and harvested entirely in Hawai‘i or produced within the state.

Food hub: A food hub is a centrally located facility that aggregates, stores, processes, distributes, or markets locally produced food.

CSA: Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a system in which a farm is supported by local consumers who purchase a subscription of the harvest of the farm's output which they receive periodically throughout the growing season.
