Community Support

Mahalo for visiting Hoʻōla Farms!

Community Support Programs

Ho`ōla Farms is dedicated to fostering partnerships with local organizations to enhance food access within our community. Through collaborative efforts with community partners, businesses, and volunteers, we aim to create sustainable solutions that uplift our community and build a resilient food system.

KauKau 4 Keiki

Over the summer, we participate in the Kaukau 4 Keiki Summer Food Service Program. For six weeks, we distribute weekly bags to keiki in our community. These bags contain a week’s worth of USDA-approved shelf-stable foods and fresh produce. Additionally, we provided a breakfast and lunch menu to complement these items.

This program is made possible in collaboration with the Dept. of Education’s Hawai‘i Child Nutrition Program and the Vibrant Hawaiʻi network of islandwide Resilience Hubs and Resilience Alliance Partners.

Learn more about the upcoming KauKau 4 Keiki program.

Kūpuna Market

At Ho`ōla Farms, we understand the importance of ensuring our kūpuna have access to fresh, locally sourced food. Through our ​​Kūpuna Market Program, we have collaborated with a variety of local partners and generous donations to provide kūpuna with vouchers to shop our online farmers market, Hawai’i Farm-to-car, and convenience of local food delivery.
