It is with broken hearts that we face the aftermath of the 2023 Maui fires, and the devastating loss of lives, homes, and livelihoods. Maui needs our collective help, now more than ever. Please encourage everyone you know to donate, as our community greatly needs support.

Farmers and ranchers, if you have been impacted by fire and wind, please complete the Maui Producer Impact & Support Survey. Please find details below.

In partnership with Hawaiʻi Farmers Union United (HFUU), the Maui County Department of Agriculture, and the Farm Bureau, we encourage all food producers impacted by fire, severe winds, and loss of markets due to the 2023 Maui fire and disaster to complete the Maui Producer Impact & Support Survey. This survey will help us identify potential federal and private funding resources and provide direct support specific to your needs to aid in recovery.

This survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete. Please share this survey with all impacted food producers you know. Find the link to the survey here:

Questions? Contact Hunter Heaivilin, HFUU Advocacy Director: (808) 391-8687 or To complete the survey via phone, please contact Amanda Shaw, Oʻahu Agriculture and Conservation Association: (808) 429-5310.

Note to producers: This survey is for all impacted producers, whether or not you are an HFUU member. We will be in contact with you within a week, once you complete the survey. As soon as it is safe to do so, please document and take clear photos of any damage.
