MariposaLocalicious Hawai‘i, a monthlong campaign to raise funds for agricultural education, kicks off March 1, with more than 65 local restaurants committed to the cause.

The inaugural event — organized by the Hawai‘i Agricultural Foundation and chaired by Alan Wong — works like this: Order a designated Localicious dish at one of the participating restaurants (dish will be made with a locally grown or raised product), and the restaurant will donate $1 to the foundation’s Veggie U educational program. The dish(es) will be identified on menus with a Localicious sticker or logo.

4855646aa02211e3951212fd640cee8a_8The goal is to raise $50,000 for Veggie U, a national program that supplies elementary classroom garden kits and a five-week science program. The program will be offered in Hawaii initially to 50 fourth-grade, public school classrooms.
