Local Food

At least double local food production – 20-30% of food consumed is grown locally

Hawai‘i’s Aloha+ Challenge local food goal was informed by stakeholder and community input to the Hawai’i 2050 Sustainability Plan, which identified doubling local food production by 2030. The state’s Sustainable Hawai‘i Initiative increases ambition, targeting to double local food by 2020. The Aloha+ Challenge Dashboard measures Hawai‘i’s progress, examining data on local food production and agriculture.


By 2030, increase access to labor and land resources to support production, processing, distribution, and consumption of local food.

By the year 2030, provide enough land in farms to support local agricultural, while allocating significant resources to support hired farm workers, ranch operators, and employ extension services across all islands.

By 2030, increased square footage and overall accessibility of commercial kitchens and operators to support local food processors and agricultural-related facilities in meeting local food needs.

By 2030, increase the directory of available and locally sourced food to meet an increased demand, and ensure local food sourced is efficiently streamlined through distribution channels–chefs, businesses, entrepreneurs, farms, and grocers.

By 2030, lowered costs and prices of local food, while ensuring subsequent food wasted is reduced overall and maximum consumption benefits received.
