Through this turbulent time and over growing concerns about the collective health of our communities, our ‘Ohana here at Maui Nui is focusing our efforts on increasing our communities’ access to quality meat through the Holo ‘Ai Program. Holo ‘ai is a term used for a traditional ti-leaf-wrapped food bundle. The words holo and ‘ai can take on an added meaning as well, one that feels especially poignant at this moment, which is to move food, to speed food to where it is needed.

As our local and global communities continue to navigate the challenges being caused by the COVID-19 virus, we feel called upon as friends, neighbors, and especially as a food producer to holo ‘ai, to push ourselves to better meet Hawai’i’s current and coming food needs.
