Same Canoe Passports
The Same Canoe Passports are now available to West and North Hawaii Island Residents
Our new Local Food Challenge Passports are a fun activity tracker. Local residents can use the colorful printed Passport to attend engaging food and farm events offered by a variety of organizations. This is a great way to earn points for entry in drawings for food or restaurant gift certificates, and for free passes to special events. See the list of approved events below. Request your Passport at an event or at our Same Canoe market booths as shown on the calendar.
Enrolled Same Canoe SNAP/EBT users can also use the Passports for education and healthy living activity tracking. Classes, workshops and tours earn points towards local produce coupons.
