At Ho Farms, we realize that we are part of the community, and only by supporting each other can we make Hawai’i a better place for us all. Because we are farmers, we leverage what we do best in our community efforts:
The HawaiiFoodbank is a fantastic organization that provides thousands of pounds of food every month to families that might otherwise go hungry. Ho Farms is committed to helping the Hawaii Foodbank’s mission and has been contributing regularly since 2006 (Papa Ho knows what it’s like to not have enough to eat). The donations help the Hawaii Foodbank reach over 416 food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters throughout the state. Join us in helping the Hawaii Food Bank fight hunger!
Hawai’i produces only 15 percent of its own food, putting us at risk from any disruption to imports, like storms or dockworker strikes. Imported vegetation can also include foreign pests that may get introduced into our ecosystem. By producing more of our own food, we address these issues, preserve open green spaces, create jobs, keep money in Hawai’i, and promote the health and nutrition of local families.
In addition to being a local food producer, Ho Farms actively addresses the above issue through our contributions to and participation in events that promote Hawaii’s local agriculture, and by being vocal advocates for the coexistence of our industry and the rapidly changing urban lifestyle.
At Ho Farms, we’re passionate about feeding Hawai’i. What is your passion? If you’re looking for a unique and healthy way to raise funds for your local organization, may we humbly suggest combining our passions by offering local fresh produce for your fundraiser? Of course, we can supply local vegetables of the highest quality in convenient packaging.
We would love to support your decision to promote local agriculture in your fundraiser. Contact us at email@example.com to learn more.
