On Saturday, March 16, North Kohala Eat Locally Grown and Sustainable Kohala will co-sponsor a guided shopping tour of the Waimea Homestead and Parker School Farmers Markets.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. guest chef Vivienne Aronowitz, M.P.H., R.D will lead the tour, then bring her purchases to the Waimea Guest House to prepare into a healthy feast.

There, she will share nutrition insights on the recipes demonstrated and give tips on how to quickly prepare healthy meals using locally grown ingredients.

Aronowitz is a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, a nutrition consultant for Kaiser Permanente, and coauthor of the Healthwise Quanity Cookbook. She is also the current President of the Board of Malaai, the culinary garden of Waimea Middle School.

The class will meet at the Waimea Homestead Farmers Market, located at the Kuhio Hale West Hawaii Office of Department of Hawaiian Homelands (on Highway 19 next to the 55 mile marker).

Space is limited and advance registration is required. A registration fee of $10 will be collected on the day of the class.

The North Kohala Eat Locally Grown Campaign aims to connect the community with knowledge and sources of locally grown food. It is a project of the North Kohala Community Resource Center and is funded by Kaiser Permanente, county Department of Research and Development, and the Local Initiatives Fund of RSF Social Finance.
