About Us

Malama ‘Aina – We care for that which feeds us.

The Maui Hub is a non-profit, community-based, organization whose primary mission is to provide local fresh and affordable produce to Maui residents at all income levels, food banks, and community kitchens.

We make it possible for farmers to work together to meet the growing demand for local, sustainable food on Maui. 

Mission

Our mission is to support local food supply lines, build community resilience and play a leading role toward a renaissance of the local food economy by providing a distribution pathway from local farmers and food producers, direct to the public.

Vision

We envision a cadre of agriculture stakeholders collaborating to increase access to local food grown using practices that promote soil health, optimal nutrition and the creation of value-added products that utilize the regional hub structure to support food producers in increasing capacity and optimizing food access, safety and security for all.

Values

Access to healthy food for everyone, support local farmers and businesses, conservation, and sustainability.

Goals

Our goal is to transition to a permanent food infrastructure for
local farmers, ranchers, producers, and consumers..

Incentive

Maui imports over 80% of our food and the current pandemic has brought our broken local food supply front and center. We lack the infrastructure to procure, aggregate, and distribute local produce to local residents, particularly low-income residents. Food hubs are critical in the value chain to facilitate market access and increase access to local food for low income consumers.

Our Achievements

Maui Food Hub at mauihub.org was started in the midst of a pandemic, which changed the buying and selling of agricultural products statewide.  Many farmers were suddenly  unable to sell much of their produce due to the closure of most restaurants, bars and hotels.

MauiHub.org presents 250-300 local goods offered by 35+ producers. There is a large selection of high quality produce and products, everything from star apples, jaboticaba, fingerlimes, lychee, tomatoes, many greens, herbs, onions, potatoes, trout, kombucha, oils, honey, poi, steamed luau, and much more.

In just five months, Maui Hub was awarded 501(c)(3) non profit status and qualified to accept food stamps through the  USDA’s SNAP/EBT program. Additional support was then offered through the Da Bux (double up food bucks) program administered by Hawai’i Food Basket.

Testimonials

We have been using the Maui Food Hub and are totally happy with their products and service. What a treat to eat healthy farm fresh food grown on Maui. The food arrives chilled and ready for us to pick up with no contact right into our trunk. This is as good as eating at one of Maui’s finest farm to table restaurants. I have been picking up for our daughter and grandchildren as well and it is so nice to drop off a box of green fresh food. I can’t wait to try the fresh trout next week.

This is the third food delivery from the farm service I have used since moving to Maui and it is by far the best! Best in value, produce and website functionality. The food is top quality and fresh as can be.  The orders are accurate and the pick-up service works!  Thanks for using your masks at the pick-up station.

I am a vegetarian since 1974, and I prefer organic. Since I moved here from Minnesota back in 1995, I have had to rely mostly on imported foods, as you may well imagine. So, I am thrilled at how many growers are participating in this operation!I expect the variety of items you have available will only continue to grow over time. I especially look forward to local potatoes and green beans and ‘ulu and kalo and squashes!  Mahalo, mahalo,  mahalo!

I’m so happy to have discovered Maui Food Hub! It makes providing delicious and fresh food for my family — while also supporting local farmers — easy to do. There’s something inherently rewarding in buying local, and it’s satisfying to know farmers have this means of directly marketing to Maui residents. I’m impressed with the variety of offerings, find the site easy to navigate, consider the prices reasonable, and find the produce far fresher than anything in the supermarket! As a senior In the time of Covid, I also appreciate the convenience and safety of buying produce from Maui Food Hub.
