Support local restaurants during Food-A-Go-Go Restaurant Week April 5-12, 2021
Sponsored by Hawaii Agricultural Foundation
Hawaii Agricultural Foundation is hosting its first Food-A-Go-Go Restaurant Week. From April 5 – 12, 2021, you can help support Hawaii’s local restaurant industry and educational programs through the Bid It To Win It For Ag Education online auction.
Food-A-Go-Go is a free community resource with the latest information on restaurants that are open for takeout, delivery or curbside pickup during the COVID-19 pandemic. At foodagogo.org, in addition to restaurant information, you can also find local produce and food products.
Food-A-Go-Go Restaurant Week has over 120 participating restaurants that will have a special dish or prix fixe menu available for customers to order. Many participating restaurants are even extending the promotion for a second week through April 19!
“This is a way for us to support our local restaurants by encouraging the community to order the Food-A-Go-Go Week special for dine-in or takeout,” says Denise Yamaguchi, executive director of the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation. “We’re launching this together with an online auction called Bid It To Win It For Ag Education to raise funds for our K-12 agricultural education programs.”
All of the participating restaurants in Food-A-Go-Go Restaurant Week and other industry partners have donated exclusive items to the online auction, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to K-12 programs at public schools statewide. These focus on exposing students to farming and agriculture.
“Our goal is to encourage students to explore careers in the industry to help increase local food production and support the sustainability of our fragile food systems,” Yamaguchi adds.
The auction opens on April 5, so be sure to go to mark your calendars! More information on the auction and a list of participating restaurants can be found on foodagogo.org.
