#GivingTuesday - Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival's Mālama ‘Āina Campaign

The Hawai`i Food & Wine Festival's HFWF21 #GivingTusday campaign focuses on driving awareness about the importance of preservation and giving back as Hawai‘i faces pressing issues like:

  • Decline of our coral reefs (in the past 30 years approximately 50% of the world’s coral has been lost) which are critical to buffering against inclement weather and a valuable source of food, medicine and even jobs – Kulena Coral Restoration
  • Food insecurity where $3 billion annually is spent on importing over 80% of food consumed in our Islands – Hawai‘i Department of Agriculture
  • Loss of the Hawaiian language (in 1985 only 32 children under the age of 18 spoke the language) and important cultural traditions and
    practices since they were banned in 1896 – University of Hawai‘i Foundation


Now through Dec. 31, 2021 ALL donations made to Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival will go directly to the 13 partner Mālama ‘Āina organizations: Hawai‘i Wildlife Fund, Ho‘okua‘āina, Hui Mālama i ke Ala ‘Ūlili, Kāko‘o ‘Ōiwi, Kipuka Olowalu, Kū-A-Kanaka, Kualoa Ranch, Kuleana Coral Restoration, Malama Loko Ea Foundation, Malama Maunalua, Paepae o He‘eia, Papahana Kuaola and Sustainable Coastlines.


Their goal for this year is to raise $32,500 for 13  Mālama ‘Āina partners.
