Farmers Market Has Healthy Treats, Contest
The partnership among Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, Kapolei High School and Malama Learning Center has resulted in a weekly farmers and green market at Kapolei High School each Thursday from 3 to 6:30 p.m.
This year, Makeke Kapolei celebrates its third year in the community and will incorporate a healthy trick-or-treat and costume contest into its Oct. 30 festivities.
Entertainment will be provided by Kapolei Middle School, American Renaissance Academy and Halau ‘O Kauluaua’e.
There also will be a heavy education component thanks to vendor demonstrations from Malama Learning Center and others, as well as projects by students.
