—————————————————————————

The Hawaii Farm to School Program was established when Governor Ige signed Act 218  into law on July 7, 2015;

The Hawaii Farm to School Program is established within the Department of Agriculture (HRS §141-11) with the following purposes to:

  • Improve student health;
  • Develop an educated agricultural workforce;
  • Enrich the local food system through the support and increase of local food procurement for the State’s public schools and other institutions;
  • Accelerate garden and farm-based education for the State’s public school students; and
  • Expand the relationships between public schools and agricultural communities.

 

The Hawaii Farm to School Coordinator works in collaboration with stakeholders to address the issues of supply, demand, procurement, and consumption of Hawaii-grown foods in Hawaii facilities, primarily focusing on schools, and takes reasonable steps to incorporate more agriculture and nutrition education in schools.

The Hawaii Farm to School Coordinator is Robyn L.K. Pfahl, Esq., who can be reached at robyn.pfahl@hawaii.gov
