Hawaii Farmers Union Foundation (HFUF) recognizes that climate change, pressure on our fresh water resources, global political instability, and a fragile global food supply chain are factors that contribute to food insecurity. As a buffer against this insecurity, we ask our sponsors, donors, and supporters to invest in local farmers and sustainable agriculture in Hawaii.
The solution is at our fingertips: Local farmers using regenerative agricultural practices to build soil and produce nutritious and delicious locally grown food.
That’s our approach to sustainability in Hawaii. It is time to be the change we want to see. We ask for your support to grow the future our grandchildren deserve to enjoy.

“The HFUU mission is a path that brings into light the importance of a community building through agricultural diversity. By collaborating and cooperating with one another and nature, in the task and relationship of growing nutrient rich food, we maintain our own wellbeing and vitality and contribute to a more prosperous and abundant community.
Encouraging others to invest in the agricultural system they want is central to HFUF/HFUU’s horizontally oriented leadership, with every member honored as an important piece of the puzzle.
I support and advocate for family farmers in making a living at farming while valuing regenerative soil practices that promote sustainability for future generations, along with growing our agricultural presence throughout the state.” – Vincent Mina, HFUU President
“If you eat food, support your farmers.” – Melissa Jenks-Olivit, former HFUU Membership Chair
