About Mālama Kauaʻi

Mālama Kaua‘i is a non-profit organization that has focused on increasing local food production and access for a resilient Kaua‘i since 2006. Their food hub services were established as a request by farmers, and they currently support retail, commercial, and institutional customers across Kaua’i.

Mālama Kaua‘i was the first food hub established on Kaua‘i island, and is also the first food hub statewide building their hub facility from the ground-up - providing unique insight into farmer-led facility design and the challenges of capital fundraising. 

As the Food Access Coordinator for Kaua’i, their “food access first” approach targets support for low-income food access with SNAP/EBT acceptance, and they are the only islandwide provider of DA BUX on Kaua’i. MK also distributes free kūpuna produce bags, and runs keiki programs such as Kaukau 4 Keiki, Farm to ECE, and Farm to School - connecting our farmers to our future.
