Our third event focused on raising the awareness of food issues in Hawaii by highlighting the innovative works of Green Wheel Food Hub, the Institute of Human Services, and Transition Oahu. Activities included face painting, bag making with the Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation, a tsukemono workshop, and talk circle on food issues. Participants included Revolution Books, Aikea, Nā Mea Hawaiʻi, and the Hawaiʻi Book Publishers Association, which featured a lead-up book swap. We screened four local short films from the Maui Huliau Foundation, R3IMAGE and the Department of Urban & Regional Planning, closing with Bob Bates' documentary Ingredients Hawaiʻi.
