Localicious Hawaii to Support Ag Education

Top of Waikiki House Salad

Top of Waikiki is proud to partner with the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation (HAF) to participate in the 2015 Localicious Hawaii; a month-long campaign to promote restaurants committed to supporting the local agricultural industry and raise funds for HAF’s agricultural education program.

For the entire month of March, Top of Waikiki will contribute $1 to HAF’s ag education program, Veggie U, for every House Salad ordered. The popular $12 signature dish features a delicate and colorful mix of locally grown produce such as the MA’O Farms Sassy Mix and radishes, Ho Farms Family Mix Tomatoes and Ho Farms Japanese Cucumbers, tossed in house-made pomegranate vinaigrette.

“At Top of Waikiki, we do our best to purchase locally grown produce when available, and believe in backing the local farms and agricultural industry in Hawaii,” says Executive Chef Lance Kosaka. “We also encourage student internships and educational programs through community colleges to train up-and-coming chefs; HAF’s agriculture education is important for our industry and we support it.”

Localicious Hawaii is made possible through the generous support of ChefZone, a division of Y. Hata, Hawaii State Department of Agriculture, Hawaii Gas, Paradise Cove, Honolulu Brewers Festival and Honolulu Magazine. For further information about Localicious Hawaii, visit localicioushawaii.com.
