We use food, the great connector, to find Common Ground
Common ground to us is where the things we share form the foundation for mutual respect, responsibility, and care. We begin with place, we honor Hawaii’s agricultural legacies, we invest in a circular economy and build a community dedicated to the future of food and society at large, rooted in local practices and forward-thinking global perspectives.
We believe that change comes from engaged, energized, curious people who feel a sense of connection and mutual responsibility. Common Ground sets the table for conversations and interactions about how we eat, how we connect, how we solve challenges, and how we leave a better future for this planet.
Common Ground Initiative
Every culture, every community has something to offer to the world – lessons we can learn, successes we can build on, and experiences that can help guide us through the challenges of our modern world. Our aim with CGI is to highlight and share the practices that have helped communities persevere and thrive.
