This month's bag credit earnings are being donated to Hawaiian Canoe Club.
Mana Foods is incredibly proud to be a one-of-a-kind, family owned and operated business. We believe that it's our responsibility to promote environmentally friendly practices, and to give back to our community. We also believe that we're all one family, and our bag credit program is designed to support the environment and our extended ʻohana.
The Mana Foods bag credit program...
Every month Mana Foods donates to a different local organization. It’s really easy to participate: whenever you bring your own grocery bag (any kind of bag) to Mana Foods, you receive a bag credit. You can donate this or take it off your bill.
What make Hawaiian Canoe Club so special...
"Fifty years ago, John and Kealoha Lake established Hawaiian Canoe Club to perpetuate and preserve the art of outrigger canoe paddling by developing character through traditional Hawaiian values. These Hawaiian values and principals are based on respect for the kupuna, fostering the keiki, and nourishing ‘ohana values."
"Our keiki programs have expanded over the years and now provide our youth with paddling trips to Lana’i, Kaho’olawe, and Moloka’i, paddle making programs, and other experiences that teach Hawaiian values like lokahi or “working together as one”. Additionally, we have partnered with other non-profit organizations to other provide educational and recreational services at our hale. These experiences help our keiki learn respect for themselves and our community." -HCC
