4th Annual Localicious Hawaii Dining Guide for Maui

The 4th Annual Localicious Hawaii campaign is officially underway, bringing local ingredients to some wonderful participating restaurants on Maui throughout March. Among these restaurants are a celebrated collection of chefs who are using fresh, healthy local Maui ingredients in the dishes they serve to us, the patrons. This supports hard working folks on the island as well as ourselves!

There will be over 170 eateries participating in Hawaii, with Honolulu claiming the majority, but Maui will have nearly 20 of its own participants. They will feature menu items with products that are locally grown, caught or raised. Each time a Localicious dish is purchased, a dollar goes to the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation (HAF), with the specific purpose of expanding agricultural education programs.

All the proceeds are currently going to fourth-grade teachers via the Veggie U program, giving them tools to engage students in interactive scientific and agricultural activities. Since the program began in 2014, garden kits and structured curriculums have been provided to about 60 public schools and 170 classrooms throughout the state. Who knows, perhaps these efforts will inspire future generations of healthy food producers here on Maui.

According to Denise Hayashi Yamaguchi, executive director of HAF, more and more restaurants are getting involved with this initiative every year. That means more collaboration on healthy, local agricultural production with students, farmers, fishermen, and ranchers. If you're interested in this kind of work, take a look at Maui vacant land listings, many of which are agriculturally zoned. If you want to sample some fine local cuisine, here is your guide.

If you're in the market for Maui real estate, but you're still getting familiar with the island, this is a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with the culinary scene. Especially the eateries that participate in community efforts to promote farm-to-table local food production. Mahalo, and enjoy!
