What’s New

February is Drug-Free Hawaii Awareness Month and we are honored and excited that Kaka`ako Kitchen has selected Coalition for a Drug-Free Hawaii as the February beneficiary of their 12 Months of Giving initiative!

In 2015, the Kaka`ako Kitchen team came up with 12 Months of Giving to say thank you to Hawai`i’s communities by giving back to non-profits that make a difference in the lives of many who live in Hawai`i. Each month Russell Siu, Executive Chef & Owner of Kaka`ako Kitchen creates a special dish to help a local non-profit.

In February, dine-in or take-out at Kaka`ako Kitchen and order the special “Furikake Tempura Shrimp Hoagie” (6 furikake tempura battered shrimp fried to a perfect crisp with cole slaw and a chili aioli on a poi hoagie) with your choice of nalo greens, mac salad, or curly fries! 20% of the proceeds from this dish will be donated to the Coalition for a Drug-Free Hawaii to further our work with children, families, schools, and communities in the islands.  Print a flyer to post!

Join us in celebrating Drug-Free Hawaii Awareness Month and Kaka`ako Kitchen’s heartfelt initiative by ordering the “Furikake Tempura Shrimp Hoagie” during February!

The Hawaii Meth Project is now a special program with the Coalition for a Drug-Free Hawaii (CDFH).  The Hawaii Meth Project’s “Not Even Once” message will continue on.

Many of Hawaii Meth Project’s media, educational materials, and program incentives will still be available through CDFH.  Online resources including the Meth Prevention Lesson for schools will continue to be accessible at hawaiimethproject.org
