Kaua‘i Food Access Plan

The Kaua‘i Food Access Plan 2030 will be a guide to increasing healthy food access in Kaua‘i County, with the long-term goal of reducing overweight/obesity statistics and chronic disease among Kaua‘i residents. It is being developed by a broad coalition of partners across Kaua’i and supported by Hawai’i State Department of Health Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Division through a Food Access Capacity Building Project led by Mālama Kaua’i.

Healthy eating is vital in creating resilient communities and preventing many chronic diseases. By creating policies, systems and environments that support healthy eating, communities can become more resilient and thrive. The question raised to all throughout the process of developing the plan and its objectives is:

How do we increase access to healthy food on Kaua‘i?

Have Your Voice Heard!

MK will be hosting 4 community meetings every Wednesday from 4-6pm in the month of January. With the support of our community partner co-hosts we will host a meeting in each moku to develop this plan together.

The meetings will be a great way to get involved, have your voice heard, and help to strengthen our local food system from the ground up! Plus, a free farm-to-table meal prepared by local restaurants will be available to the first 50 people to register for each meeting. Register ASAP with the unique meeting registration form links below:
