Kohala Food Hub is an online marketplace of tasty, healthy locally grown produce and locally made products in North Kohala on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Our customers can shop a la carte for the items they want, and can also sign up for our Multi-Farm CSA Program, which offers a rotating weekly variety of seasonal freshly harvested local produce.
In collaboration with the locally-based 501(c)(3) Same Canoe, Kohala Food Hub serves qualifying residents of the North Kohala Community with free fresh produce boxes each month through the Veggie Rx program, geared toward improving our community’s health and well being.
A project of the Kapa'au-based nonprofit HIP Agriculture, Kohala Food Hub was launched to serve the Hawai‘i State Farm to School pilot program for the Department of Education’s Kohala school complex, in which our local cafeterias were able to buy fresh fruit and vegetables from local farmers. Farm to School is currently on hold, but we look forward to serving that important program again soon!
The farmers we work with are working together to meet the growing demand for local, nutrient dense food in the Kohala area and beyond. While not necessarily certified organic, all of the farmers we work with use natural and organic farming methods, improving our soil and natural environment.
Our Core Values
We are dedicated to supporting our local farmers by providing consistent demand, improving and increasing healthy local food access in our community, and building our local food system so that we can become more food secure and less reliant on imports.
Ordering from Kohala Food Hub helps to build and support our farming community, our local economy, and regenerative agriculture practices that preserve the land and waters for generations to come.
