Calabash & Cooks, Mālama Learning Center's signature culinary fundraising event, returns to Kapolei High School on Saturday, March 10, 2018. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Mālama Learning Center, allowing us to conduct place-based educational programs serving West O‘ahu communities, from Waipahu to Wai'anae. Our inspiration comes from the belief that children deserve a healthy Hawai‘i that is sustainable for generations to come.
Calabash & Cooks is a time for the community to come together to relax, learn, be entertained, and delight in the creativity of chefs – seasoned and up-and-coming. This year, we will create a menu featuring recipes from the new Ono Loa Cookbook: Favorite Recipes of Hawaii's High School Culinary Arts Programs. Students from seven public school culinary programs will dazzle you with their skills alongside professional chefs from Hawaii's favorite restaurants. This is a casual, alcohol-free event.
Please consider purchasing a VIP ticket, which includes reserved parking, seating and service at a VIP table, and a special hand-made gift.

Merriman's Monkeypod and Moku Kitchen
