About Roots Cultural Food Hub

The Returning to Our Roots Program was created in 2011, as an ʻāina to table initiative to address the social determinants of health by using food to help the community make connections to healthy behaviors and lifestyles. Roots is inspired by the resilient spirit of the Kalihi community and works to value common cultural traditions and honors the connections individuals and communities have to one another through the growing, preparing, and sharing of food.
