Ho’ola Farms

Established in 2015 to serve the veteran community on the island of Hawaii, Ho’ola Farms has developed into a multi-program agricultural organization leading the way in community connectivity through farming, healing, and small business entrepreneurship. Their Hawaii Farm to Car program connects nearly 80 farmers to local customers through an online purchasing portal, acting as a  virtual farmer’s market. A grant was provided in 2022 to purchase a commercial kitchen that serves the Hilo Food Hub program; an innovative approach to combating food insecurity and promoting small agri-business.
