Pick up fresh produce 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays at the Honolulu Farmers Market on the lawn of the Blaisdell Center, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday at the Hale'iwa Farmers Market, or 7:30 to 11 a.m. Saturdays at the KCC Farmers Market.

A PLACE FOR KIDS

NāNāKULI CENTER OFFERS FUN, SAFETY

When school's out in Nānākuli, students get active at the Youth Education Town center. It's a place where dodgeball, dancing, art and music meet, providing afterschool activities for these elementary-aged kids.

"We've given them a sense of belonging here," said Program Director Claudia Fernandez. "They can come here to have fun, be safe and get off the streets. (We'll) teach them resistance skills, like staying away from alcohol, tobacco and other drugs."

This is one of 14 YET programs across the nation sponsored by the National Football League. With a $1 million donation from NFL, the Nānākuli YET program built an all-green facility.
