Maui Now: MKEC & The Maui Food Bank-Maui Kuʻia Estate Chocolate

Maui Ku‘ia Estate Chocolate Donates More than $100,000 in Sweets and Proceeds During Pandemic

"When the factory was able to reopen, Saturday chocolate tastings were devoted solely to the Maui Food Bank. From June to December 2020, the chocolate company raised more than $35,200 for the Maui Food Bank. The company also held a food collection for the food bank.

The company’s newest effort is called Chocolate Laulima, meaning “many hands working together.” Valkirs developed the program as a way for both the chocolate factory and Maui nonprofits to benefit, in spite of the limitations imposed by the pandemic.

Through Chocolate Laulima, supporters to Hawai‘i nonprofits can go to the company’s website and order bags of chocolate, with 40 percent of proceeds donated to the charity of their choice. Since its inception in September 2020, more than $17,500 has been raised for the program that has rapidly expanded to serve 34 nonprofits."
