Mana Foods to host fundraiser for Kula ‘Ike Community School on Friday, January 29, 2010, from 5-8pm. The cost per plate is $10 (including a beverage) and will be held at Mana Foods, 49 Baldwin Avenue, Paia. 100% of monies raised will be donated to the school and used for tuition scholarships, teacher salaries, equipment, school supplies etc.
Largely due to the shared philosophies that support local agriculture and culture, Mana Foods and Kula ‘Ike have partnered for this fundraising effort. At Kula ‘Ike, students gain an understanding of invasive species, organic gardening, aqua culture, animal husbandry and the origins and propagation of indigenous Hawaiian plants and trees.
Kula ‘Ike Community School, located in Hana, is a registered 501C non-profit that is committed to gathering the community together to learn. The primary focus is to provide a stimulating environment that encourages the students’ inherent desire to learn. The curriculum integrates several schools of thought, Montessori and Waldorf, which encourages cooperation, mentoring and community building while celebrating diversity.
Kula ‘Ike provides students the freedom, space and tools necessary to become self-motivated, independent individuals who become life-long learners.
Hope to see you there! Please share this information with your friends and family.
