Farm to School Bill Public Hearing

We have great news! Rep. Riviere’s Farm to School bill has been assigned a public hearing next week, Wednesday Feb 9th, 10am in House Conference Room 312.

This is our first step toward instilling appreciation for agriculture in the hearts of Hawaii’s youth for generations by perpetuating self-reliance, health and by stimulating our farming investments & growth. E komo mai!

This is our big chance to show strong community support for this bill. Immediately after listening to public testimony, the Agriculture Committee will vote to pass or stop the measure.

So please inform those you know would want to attend the hearing. It would help the bill tremendously if we could fill the room with supporters!
