Bayer Hawaii lends support to ‘Farm to Hospital’ program

Five #BayerHawaii employees joined a dozen volunteers from Hawaii’s agricultural community on Monday, May 18 to bag and box more than 20,000 pounds of produce. It was part of the ‘Farm to Hospital’ program, created to help Oahu farmers and healthcare workers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Bayer Hawaii volunteers gathered at the Neal Blaisdell Exhibition Hall; it took the group seven hours to get the produce ready for delivery. In all more than 2,000 healthcare workers were treated to a bag full of pineapples, cabbage, papaya, sweet potatoes, and tomatoes.

Mahalo to the Hawaii Crop Improvement Association (HCIA) for putting the ‘Farm to Hospital’ event together along with other sponsors the Hawaii Farm Bureau, Healthcare Association of Hawaii, Hawaiian Electric, Simplot and Ulupono Initiative.

Bayer Hawaii is a member of HCIA.
