Localicious

Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation launched Localicious Hawaiʻi in 2014 to raise public awareness of restaurants that are committed to sustaining our local agricultural industry and through doing so, raising funds for agricultural education in our public schools. After it’s first year, the Hawaiʻi State Legislature declared the month of March to be Localicious Hawaiʻi month in support of the program.

The Localicious Hawaiʻi campaign runs from March 1–31 to coincide with National Agricultural Day and partners with over 200 restaurants statewide. Participating restaurants feature a dish made with a locally grown, caught or raised product throughout the month. The dish(es) are identified on menus with a Localicious sticker or logo next to the item. When patrons order the “Localicious” dish, the restaurant makes a contribution to HAF’s agricultural education programs in public schools.

Education Impact

All of HAF’s agricultural education programs are supported by the Localicious Hawaii campaign. Each restaurant that raises a minimum of $500 can adopt a public DOE  classroom that teaches one of HAF’s ag education programs.

The goal of the campaign is to raise $70,000 and extend ag education programs to more classrooms across the state of Hawaiʻi.  Funds raised are used to purchase supplies and classroom kits, provide stipends, arrange ground and air transportation, and develop training materials for teachers.

In conjunction with Localicious Hawaii, the Hawaii Gas Localicious Art and Poetry Contest is for students in kindergarten through grade 8.   The contest helps to raise awareness in our students about Hawaii’s locally grown produce and products.  Students are challenged to artistically articulate their favorite foods made with a locally grown, caught or raised product.  More than 600 students have participated in the contest over the past four years.  

 

Participating Restaurants

During the month of March, over 200 Localicious restaurants create a dish using a locally grown, caught or raised product and feature it on their menus. Every time the dish is ordered, the restaurant makes a donation to HAF’s agricultural education programs.
