Slow Food Maui Fundraiser
Our menu consisted of two plate lunches, a grilled Maui Cattle Co. beef burger or a salmon burger served with homemade asian coleslaw, sweet potato fries and a beverage.

Slow Food Maui fundraiserIn all, we raised close to $700 for the cause and signed up about 30 people for the mailing list, several of whom verbally committed to helping the organization grow.

Special thanks to Chris and Becky Speere for bringing help in the form of two student chefs from the Maui Culinary Academy, to Tylun Pang, Executive Chef of The Fairmont Kea Lani and to Roxanne Tiffin, owner of Kula Fields for helping us make this a success.
