Slow Food Oahu Annual Membership Meeting
February 4 @ 3:00 am – 5:00 pm
Eating Our Way to Ono & Pono
This year, we are pleased to introduce Jhana Young from Conservation International Hawaiʻi (CI Hawaiʻi) as our guest speaker. She was born and raised in Hawaiʻi and leads sustainable seafood initiatives in the islands, including the taʻape fish project and the Hawaiʻi Sustainable Seafood campaign. Jhana enjoys fishing, hunting, and cooking and is passionate about eating invasives as one of the solutions to addressing food security and ocean health in the islands. Jhana is also a Slow Food Oʻahu board member. She will share a few stories of her work at CI Hawaiʻi and with Slow Food Oʻahu that demonstrate the ways communities across Hawaiʻi are mobilizing to target invasive fish and wild pigs in the islands—and how we each can support this work.
Public parking is available in the underground City lot just off Beretania Street (near Smith Street).
Jhana will speak at 3 PM, followed by our traditional ono and pono Slow Food potluck. We will offer tastings of both wild pork and taʻape, also known as Tahitian snapper.
Our business meeting will start after you’ve helped yourself to a plate of tasty and local food. The meeting will focus on event ideas for 2024 and board elections.
