FIHRI partners with Ka'u Global Learning Lab at Ka'u High School
As a community partner, FIHRI will support the goal of providing a select number of Ka'u students with an opportunity to explore aspects of the global food supply that contribute to poorer health outcomes. Students will have an opportunity to compete for a paid fellowship. The FIHRI fellowship will be offered to one student each semester. The fellowship will provide a structured curriculum to help students better understand the need to establish a local and sustainable food supply to improve health outcomes in Hawai'i. Students will be expected to dedicate a minimum of five hours a week to their fellowship studies. At the end of the semester, they will be required to pass an exam to demonstrate what they learned through the course of their studies. After passing the exam, the student will become certified as a Food Ingredient Safety Specialist. Click on the link to find out more!
In the case of the FIHRI fellowship, a workbook will be offered online as a healthy diet tutorial. The textbook will be provided at no charge. For each chapter in the book, the tutorial provides a variety of activities, including hands-on learning opportunities, discussion questions, scavenger hunt assignments, and videos. The fellow will meet with the FIHRI Kumu once a week at which time all writing assignments will be turned in for grading and a talk story session will take place.
