Buzz. Worthy. Big Island Candies’ Partnership with the “Adopt-a-Beehive with Alan Wong” Program

Big Island Candies is all abuzz, and we hope you’ll “bee” too, about our new partnership: During May 2024, order our Bee Sunny Box and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this box will be donated to the “Adopt-a-Beehive with Alan Wong” program.

Here’s a little background about this (buzz)worthy cause: In 2011, Chef Alan Wong partnered with the University of Hawaii at Hilo to build awareness of the critical plight of honey bees, and to promote local solutions to sustaining the honey bee industry. The Program supports the education of student beekeepers, promotes the research and development of healthy beehive practices in Hawaii, and educates the public about the vital role that honey bees play in sustaining agriculture and our food supply.

Would you like to learn more? If so, click on the video to meet some of the people behind the beekeeping suits, including Chef Alan Wong, Dr. Lorna Tsutsumi (Professor at the University of Hawaii at Hilo), and `Iliahi Park, a student beekeeper.

If you’re ready to shop and help support, order our Bee Sunny Box from today, or you can purchase it at our Hilo or Ala Moana Center store. Mahalo!
