Join the #ONOREVOLUTION
Good things happen when we collectively gather to EAT THINK DRINK! We learn, share and are inspired by the thoughtful conversations that happen over the dining table. The Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation (HAF) invites the public to EAT THINK DRINK presented by Hawaiian Airlines, a quarterly series created to bring diverse communities together to find common ground on issues of agriculture and food in our state.
