Mission

Sustʻāinable Molokai is a local, grassroots group formed to inspire youth and all Molokai residents to work toward a more sustainable future for our island. As a community-led and driven process, Sustʻāinable Molokai adopts a broad and inclusive approach. We draw upon the strengths inherent in our island´s close-knit community and seek to cultivate symbiotic and diverse partnerships for projects designed to become self-supporting. Sustʻāinable Molokai conducts education and advocacy work that honors traditional and cultural pathways alongside modern strategies for sustainability. We build partnerships and call upon community networks to restore ʻāina momona (abundance) to the land and people.

Mobile Market

The Mobile Market puts the principles of our Food Sovereignty Program into action.

Vision – food sovereignty is re-established on Molokai, meaning we grow the majority of our own food, which enables us to decide what food we eat, where it comes from, and how it is grown.
Mission – to increase local production and local consumption, as well as to grow our next generation of local producers and consumers.

In short, we distribute fresh locally grown and produced products that have been pre-ordered to drop-off points each week (see locations and times below). We have started to add products that are available for sale at these drop-off points, and hope to continue to grow that aspect of our services.
