Hua Momona Farms, located atop the Kapalua Resort in West Maui, initiated a matching donation program to help those in need for the holiday season.

On Monday, the business announced their goal was achieved.

Farm Owners Gary and Kathy Grube introduced a limited time matching program inviting farm customers and friends to donate purchased farm veggie boxes through Dec. 20. For each box purchased for donation, an additional box was matched by the farm. Any additional donated boxes beyond the 100 donated box goal – with no limit – were also to be matched by
Gary and Kathy.

The original goal of the program, to reach 100 donated boxes, was met by the
deadline with 101. The Grubes then decided to also match all 101 donated boxes resulting in a final tally of 303 boxes to help those in need.

Since its inception, the Farm has supplied over 2,000 farm boxes for food drives held at Kapalua this fall.

In addition, the Farm recently launched “Give the Gift of Wellness” program where customers can purchase a farm box to donate to a family in need on Maui.

The Farm has also been delivering free farm boxes to several food distribution services on Maui. The latest is Maui Rapid Response and Ka Hale A Ke Ola Homeless Resource Center who both help feed homeless individuals and families.
 
Hua Momona Farms is a supplier of Microgreens and premium locally grown vegetables. Currently the farm deliverers subscription farm boxes and Meal Kits directly to the consumer and Microgreens and produce to restaurants.
