Kamehameha Schools Presents Talk Story & Pau Hana with #HFWF: Rediscovering the ‘Ai in ‘Āina, Food & Our Environment

Event Date:

Thursday, May 20, 2021

Event Time:

5:30 P.M. HST / 8:30 P.M. PT / 11:30 P.M. ET



What is your foodprint? Everything we eat has an impact on Mother Earth. Whether it’s a salad, steak or filet of fish your meal has an impact on our environment. And, your foodprint is the result of what it takes to get your food from the farm to your plate.

The choices we make at every meal affect our environment, and these impacts of food are often overlooked. Our modern global food supply chain has implications for transportation, energy, labor and water – all of which contribute to the carbon footprint we leave behind. How do we balance the world’s hunger for diverse foods while reducing climate change, preserving our precious ocean resources, and saving our environment?

As we demand greater social and environmental responsibility from our public and private sectors, are we demanding the same of ourselves and our consumption habits? Explore ways in which we can be more aware about the foodprint we leave behind every time we eat.

Join HFWF as we rediscover the ‘ai in ‘āina. Seth Goldman, founder and Chief Change Agent of Eat the Change, along with other thought leaders, discuss ways in which we can reduce our foodprint. Hear from those who are fighting to preserve Earth’s natural resources and environment by creating sustainable food products, rediscovering regenerative agricultural practices, preserving our natural resources, and educating our community.
