Flatbread – Paia

Penguini – Paia

Slow Food Maui and it’s prospective members got the “royal treatment” last evening as Flatbread in Paia hosted our group around the large community table which brought together a pool of wonderfully talented individuals that will help populate our various committees.  The group dined on salads, a variety of brick oven pizzas , courtesy of Jenna of Flatbread, and decadent desserts of gelato and cupcakes, courtesy of Melissa of Penguini in Paia.

A point echoed throughout the meeting was that the committees will be the driving force behind the organization and will lead our group out into the Maui community.

Our committees are:

Education Committee: Charlene Kauhane

Chef/Restaurant Committee: Shannon Wianecki

Endorsements Committee: Tova Callender

Farm/Ag Committee: Becky Speere

Volunteer Committee: Dania Katz
