Kamehameha Schools presented a $2,000 check Aug. 6 to the Equip the Kitchens Campaign for the future Hawaii Community College-Palamanui campus. The presentation was made during the ACF Kona Kohala Chefs Association’s monthly luncheon meeting at Roy’s Waikoloa Bar and Grill.

The donation was funded from proceeds garnered during the 2014 Sam Choy’s Keauhou Poke Contest. In addition, Kamehameha Schools donated $2,000 to the Keali‘i Pauahi Foundation.

“We at Kamehameha Schools know the value of growing our farmers and, at the same time, the importance of growing our chefs,” said Les Apoliona, land asset manager of Kamehameha Schools. “The chef-farmer partnership is crucial to our island’s food sustainability and we’re happy to help the culinary effort at UH-Palamanui.”

The $200,000 Equip the Kitchens Campaign will fund kitchen appliances and equipment at Phase 1 of the long-awaited campus under construction just north of Kona International Airport.

Save the date for the fourth annual Sam Choy’s Keauhou Poke Contest on March 15 at the Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa at Keauhou Bay. The contest is part of Kamehameha School’s annual Kamehameha III celebration that commemorates the Keauhou-born king, Lani Kauikeaouli.
