Coming Up – Kanu Hawaii and Yelp Eat Local Challenge

Kanu Hawaii and Yelp collaborate on Yelp Eats Local — a week-long restaurant promotion with a great philanthropic angle — as part of the third annual Eat Local Challenge this September.

During Yelp Eats Local week (Sept. 19-25), 11 businesses will donate a portion of the proceeds from special, locally sourced menu items to Kanu Hawaii. The participating restaurants are: Brasserie Du Vin, Chai’s Island Bistro, He‘eia Kea Pier, Hula Grill Waikiki, J.J. Dolan’s, Pah Ke’s Chinese Restaurant, SOUL, Stage Restaurant, Sushi ii, Thirtyninehotel, Tiki’s Grill & Bar. Menus for the week can be found at: http://www.kanuhawaii.org/challenge/partners/?id=16

Kanu Hawaii’s third annual Eat Local Challenge engages thousands of island residents to build a more sustainable, secure, and healthy local food system. Building on the successes of the past two years, the Eat Local Challenge grows from one week to the entire month of September.

“This means two committed and powerful online and mobile communities coming together to support the local economy and boost the food movement,” said Emi Hart, Yelp Honolulu community manager, “We all look forward to seeing what thousands of residents networked by Kanu and Yelp can do to change our island for the better.”

During Yelp Eats Local week, the 11 participating businesses will support the Yelp community and Kanu Hawaii by highlighting locally sourced menu offerings.

• The menu offering features locally grown fare such as a 100% locally grown entree, salad, appetizer and/or dessert.
• A $10 donation is made to Kanu Hawaii for every Yelper that spends at least $30 when they visit during the week. (Yelpers should let servers know they are participating, and drop their receipts in a ballot box provided by Yelp.)

“This is a big win for Hawaii as far as food sustainability goes,” said Kasha Ho, Kanu community organizer. “Engaging the Yelp community to participate with their wallets and forks in the Eat Local Challenge is a monumental win for our local farmers and restaurants.”

Kanu invites Hawaii to make a commitment to taking action in support of a healthy, sustainable, secure food system. Recipes, guides and deals from Eat Local restaurants and market partners are available on Kanu’s website to help support challenge commitments.
