A few weekends ago, 40 of our Foodland employees spent some time planting banana trees and picking weeds at Ma‘o Organic Farms in Wai‘anae. It was an amazing experience and we were able to take home some of the fruits and vegetables of our labor. Fresh off the farm and certified organic, everything tasted unbelievably delicious!
The Easter Lily Plants arrived this week to all Foodland and Sack ‘N Save stores. They are stunning! The trumpet shaped blooms of the Easter Lily is what makes this plant unique.

I was so fortunate to get to travel through India a few years ago on a tea buying trip…it was an amazing experience that opened my mind up to a new culture and an exciting new world of flavors.
