#LOCALICIOUSCOOKS: BEEF UP YOUR SUMMER COOKOUT AND SUPPORT TOMORROW’S FARMERS

From June 16 to July 31, Pan Pacific Retail Management Hawaii (PPRMHI) stores – Times Supermarket, Don Quijote, Marukai Wholesale Mart, Shima’s, and Big Save – will donate 25 cents for every per pound of ʻOhana Cattle Company ground beef sold in stores to the Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation’s (HAF) K-12 ag education programs. To support local ranchers, HAF will also run a #LocaliciousCooks Instagram Sweepstakes for a chance to win a case of ʻOhana Cattle Company ground beef and celebrate summer cookouts with local hamburger recipes from the community.

“Pan Pacific Retail Management Hawaii is proud to support our local ranchers while also partnering with HAF to teach our keiki about local agriculture and the importance of food security,” says Jordan Tanoue, Meat & Deli Buyer of PPRMHI “ʻOhana Cattle Company sources cattle raised by local ranching families throughout the Hawaiian Islands and aims to preserve the paniolo lifestyle.”

“We are grateful for the generous donation from PPRM and ‘Ohana Cattle Company to support our K-12 education programs,” says Denise Yamaguchi, Executive Director of HAF.

“With this donation, we can continue our work on cultivating the next generation of farmers and ranchers through our programs in the public schools.” HAF’s K-12 education programs play an important part in planting the seeds of interest in our keiki to choose an ag-related career, needed to help increase local food production and safeguard the sustainability of our islands. Beginning in elementary school, students learn about plant life cycles beginning from seeds to growing and harvesting vegetables. At the upper elementary level and through middle school, students are introduced to other methods of farming such as aquaponics. At the high school level, HAF programs offer students the opportunity to gain real-world working experiences through internship programs with local ag-based businesses.

To support this promotion, HAF is also hosting a Localicious Cooks Instagram Sweepstakes.

Three winners will be chosen to receive a case of ‘Ohana Cattle Company ground beef. How to enter:
