Farmers, would you like to talk to distributors directly and showcase your produce? The Kohala Center is seeking farmers to provide fresh fruits and vegetables for our keiki by connecting with distributors and charter schools at the upcoming Farm to School Mixer.
The Kohala Center is working on improving and expanding the local farm to school supply chain on Hawaiʻi Island in order to increase access to fresh food in our schools and expand economic opportunity for local farmers. Together with the Arts & Sciences Center, The Kohala Center is hosting a Farm to School Mixer to connect Hawai‘i Island farmers and food producers to charter schools and distributors.
The event will be at the Hawai‘i Academy of Arts and Science in Pāhoa on Tuesday, June 30 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Interested farmers can register online at www.koha.la/f2smixer or call The Kohala Center at 808-887-6411.
The event is free but space is limited so register by June 25th to reserve your spot.
