Healthy Foods at the Local Markets

Get Fit Kauai's Access to Healthy Foods (ATHF) Task Force is dedicated to increasing the availability of and access to affordable, healthy food. We are a group of community members, non-profit representatives, government workers, and Get Fit Kauai staff.

What we're working on

COMMUNITY FOOD SYSTEM ASSESSMENT Project Details
In March 2014 the ATHF Task Force completed a Community Food System Assessment (CFSA) of Kauai County. The goal of the CFSA was to learn more about food accessibility and to identify existing and potential sources of nutritious produce for Kauai's low-income residents. The CFSA findings have been used to develop strategies that will increase access to healthy food for all residents of Kauai. PDF
EBT FARMERS' MARKET PROGRAM Project Details
The Task Force is supporting the reintroduction of the EBT Farmers’ Market program on Kauai, which is slated for June 2014. The EBT Farmers' Market program on Kauai provides SNAP families access to healthy, locally grown produce and food items. Our task force is involved in promoting this program and working with partners to sustain this program long term. For more information about the EBT Farmers’ Market Program please visit the Malama Kauai website. PDF
PROMOTING HEALTHY SCHOOL MEALS AND SNACKS Project Details
The Task Force is exploring initiatives that increase the availability of nutritious meals and snacks in local schools. Currently, we are working with schools and administrators to better understand the food procurement process and to develop strategies that will promote the utilization of fresh, local produce in student meal and snack programs.

Get Fit Kauai is built on the integration and involvement of community partners. Community partners and volunteers are the key to the successes of this organization.
