KAANAPALI – Duke’s Beach House recently presented Hawaii Agricultural Foundation with a donation of $2,441 through its Localicious Maui program.

Localicious Maui is a program created to help grow the next generation of farmers and ranchers on Maui while supporting restaurants that provide farm-and-pasture-to-table menus.

A portion of the proceeds from the Farm Salad during the months of July, August and September were donated.

“Through Localicious Maui, not only are we able to help bring Maui’s fresh produce to our guests, but we can also support local business,” said Noah Yamada, Duke’s Beach House assistant general manager.

“Duke’s is proud to be a part of a program that works to develop and build the future of Maui agriculture.”

Throughout 2014, Duke’s Beach House will donate a portion of the proceeds on a featured salad, made with Maui grown produce, to Localicious Maui. The featured salad will be denoted by the Growing Future Farmers logo on the menu.
