Chefs Feeding Their Community
Chef Hui first became a project of Pili Group in 2017 as a way to foster connections between the culinary world and the community. We received numerous requests to partner with local organizations and schools to lead creative and interactive food related programs, and soon found a growing interest in culinary professionals wanting to do the same.
Fast forward to 2020, we are a group of local cooks and food service providers throughout the islands coming together to serve their community and improve our food system. In March of this year, Chef Hui pivoted to support community feeding efforts and are now partnering on statewide distributions and provide over 3,000 meals a week to kupuna, keiki and families in need.
Our mission is to create opportunities to connect the culinary world with their community through a strong network of local chefs and produce providers. We aim to provide opportunities for like minded culinary professionals and educators to deepen their connection to farmers, ranchers, schools, community organizations and individuals working to build a more robust food system and a resilient community. We currently have partners throughout Hawai’i and some day we hope to grow efforts to support the Pacific region and work with similar programs.
