Foodland Reusable Bags are Safe

As you may have already heard, a Florida newspaper recently reported on lead content in the paint on some reusable bags from local Florida supermarkets. (To read the full, original story, visit tampatrib.com)

Mahalo for Taking the Bag Challenge!

I’ve come to realize that as a kama`aina company, Foodland truly cares about our community and the place we call home. In one of our meetings, someone reported that an average Hawaii family uses more than 700 plastic bags a year for grocery shopping. With more than 400,000 Hawaii households, that’s more than 280,000,000 plastic bags a year! We knew that we needed to work towards changing those statistics.

How to Plan a Successful Thanksgiving Dinner

I love the holiday season and things kick into high gear on Thanksgiving. Even though it is a fun time, it can be a stressful one when it comes to getting the dinner together.

Here are a few tips that can help to make this a time you can enjoy your company instead of stress in the kitchen.

Planning is key. Don't try to make everything on Thanksgiving day. If you layer your tasks, you can spread most of the work over the course of the week.

Kids just wanna have Fun!

Do you have children that don’t like to eat their fruits & vegetables? Do they kick and scream if you place a carrot or some broccoli on their plate? If so, please check out FoodChamps.org. While I can't say that they'll be begging for brussels sprouts or green beans, it sure is a fun site to learn about fruits & vegetables, and hopefully encourage them to try different ones. I must admit that I had a great time exploring this site ... more »
