Mrs. Obama visits Ma’o Organic Farms of Hawaii



Mrs. Obama visits Ma’o organic farms of Hawaii to draw attention to her healthy food cause. While enjoying the gracious Hawaiian hospitality, Mrs. Obama and her girls Malia and Sasha wanted to highlight the hard working organic farm to promote healthy eating choices.

While President Obama was stuck in Washington on Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama was in Hawaii introducing daughtersMalia and Sasha to the wonders of organic farming, Aloha style. Joined by Senior Policy Advisor for Healthy Food Initiatives Sam Kass, Mrs. Obama took her girls for a visit to MA’O Organic Farms in the Waianae area, according to Honolulu chef Ed Kenney, a board member for the community farm. Using fresh produce, Kenney and Kass cooked veggie-laden pizzas in a fire oven. Mrs. Obamafirst visited the farm in November, when she hosted a Let’s Move! event there as President Obama hosted the APEC Leaders Meeting in Honolulu. (Above: Mrs. Obama and Kenney during her first visit to the farm)

“Beautiful morning @maoorganicfarms w/ the FLOTUS & her girls. Kiawe-fired pizza w/ White House chef Sam Kass,” Kenneytweeted about the First Lady’s visit.

The First Lady arrived on island with her daughters, Kass and other aides last Friday night for a 17-day vacation. In November, Kass and Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, were at home in Washington when Kenney joined Mrs. Obama at the 24-acre, student-run certified organic MA’O for a tour of the crop rows and the Let’s Move! round table. The chef/owner of Town and Downtown restaurants, Kenney, 43, also cooked the First Lady’s special farm-to-table APEC Spouses Luncheon the next day at Kualoa Ranch, which starred produce from MA’O (more on Kenney here).

Kass routinely accompanies the First Family on their winter vacations in Hawaii and summer vacations on Martha’s Vineyard. The First Family is staying in the town of Kailua, in a rented compound along the pristine beaches of Kaneohe Bay, up the street from the house they stayed in last Christmas. Extended family and Chicago friends are reported to be on island for the vacation, too. President Obama’s arrival date on island has not yet been announced by the White House.

During their vacation , Mrs. Obama visits the Ma’o organic farms of Hawaii. The efforts of the First Lady are making a difference in many peoples lives. Especially  children who are encouraged to learn the best way to eat healthy and also about where food actually comes from.
