This Thursday, Nov. 15: Man, Woman and Nature Series: Food Security @MauiArtsCulture

Despite the abundant land and natural resources, Hawaii still imports 85 percent of its food and only has a seven-day supply of food on store shelves at any given time. Scared? You should be. But here’s your chance to explore the issues of food security and access to food that’s affordable, safe, healthy and culturally acceptable and food that is produced in ways that are environmentally sound and socially just. This Thursday, Ala Kukui will present “Food Security,” the fourth part in the Man, Woman and Nature Series. The evening will discuss the relationship of humans to the natural world. Guest speakers Karen Washington, a front-line New York City community gardener and activist, and John Lind, a Kipahulu taro farmer, will moderate. $10. 6pm. Maui Arts and Cultural Center, McCoy Studio Theater (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 808-242-2787;
