The first annual Hawai`i Food & Wine Festival kicks off this Thursday evening.

As a locally owned company that understands the value of buying local, Foodland is a proud sponsor of this Festival.
We recently launched these at all the Foodland stores. What’s great about the Gnu Foods Flavor and Fiber bars is that you get almost half of your recommended daily fiber intake in one bar, they only have about 130 calories and they taste great.

As you may recall, last year I wrote recipes that were mostly local, but this year, I thought that some of you may want to step it up a notch and decide to go 100% local.
Have you ever wondered what you could do with all that spare change you have lying around? If you’re anything like me, you have money all over your house… even in your car!
What if I told you all that change could win you groceries or gas for a year? It can, if you head in and visit our friends at Coinstar! Stop by your local Foodland, Sack N Save or Foodland Farms store and cash in $10 or more at the Coinstar kiosk and receive a special entry code.

This week I am thrilled to introduce locally grown and assembled Living Garden Succulent Plants. These hardy beauties come to us from the creativity of Terri and Greg Lee who are the owners and designers of 1st Look Exteriors.
