Sep 19, 2022

Monkeypod Kitchen has been recognized as the third 2022 recipient of the No Ka oi Highway Hui Award for the business’ multiyear and multi-segment volunteerism for the Adopt-A-Highway program!

The popular restaurant founded by renowned Chef Peter Merriman has two locations on the island – inWailea and Ka`anapali – as well as two Adopt-A-Highway segments: between mile markers 3.5 to 5.5along Pi`ilani Highway,and from mile markers 16 to 18 along Honoapi`ilani Highway.

Tori Hudson, general manager of the Monkeypod Kitchen in Wailea, said their volunteerism for the Adopt-A-Highway program stems from one of their restaurant’s seven brand values: Leave the world a
better place.

Monkeypod Kitchen is a great community partner. They’ve been very consistent in organizing at least four cleanups annually for both of their segments, typically involving 20 volunteers who remove 20 to 30 bags of trash each time, and sending in their cleanup data, which helps with overall program management. We’re very appreciative of their contributions to the program and to Maui’s environment!

Mahalo Monkeypod Kitchen for all of your hard work!
