LIHU‘E — Malama Kaua‘i is hosting four Community Food Access Meetings, starting Jan. 4, 2023, to focus on how to increase local food access and create sustainable food systems on Kaua‘i.
Community feedback will factor into the draft Kaua‘i Food Access Plan’s goal to improve food access by 2030 for all of Kaua‘i, Malama Kaua‘i said in its meeting notices. This project is supported by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Division.
