Kōkua Kahili Valley Comprehensive Family Services (KKV)


The Roots Program of Kōkua Kalihi Valley Comprehensive Family Services (KKV), grounded in traditional Hawaiian values, seeks to increase food and health abundance in the greater Honolulu area of O’ahu. Through cultural knowledge sharing and skills training; grassroots food and food production resource exchange; use of local supply chains to support local farms and consumers; and ongoing collaboration with local and statewide cohorts, Roots benefits the Kōkua Kalihi Valley community by applying an indigenous model of health that views connectivity between people and their knowledge as a primary author of health.
