Several of the Food Innovation Center programs will be initially launched in part through funding provided by a CARES Act grant from the County of Kauai Kūpaa Kaua'i program and in partnership with Kauai Government Employees Federal Credit Union. Additional funding was provided by Ulupono Initiative.
