Kauai Local Food Connector

For over a decade, our local food system has always been a priority for us, and in times of challenges and changes it’s even more critical to the health of our community that we remain strong, dynamic, and resilient – together.

Recent disruptions are impacting all of us, and we are committed to working collaboratively across the ag industry to create options to keep local food accessible to all.
