CTAHR’s Food Systems Working Group was established in 2016 to answer the question, “How can CTAHR Extension build a healthier and more sustainable food system in Hawaiʻi?” The group developed a framework to guide CTAHR’s food systems activities and strategies. As a result of the group’s efforts, we have identified areas of the food system addressed by existing CTAHR activities. Find out more at Food Systems Working Group.
