Welcome The Traveling Plate, a culinary journey that showcases local sought-after chefs, highlights Hawaii’s diverse ingredients and serves as a fundraiser directly supporting Easter Seals statewide.
“The Traveling Plate is a contemporary extension of Easter Seals Hawaii’s decades old tradition of connecting food and fun with awareness of our mission to empower people with disabilities and special needs,” Ron Brandvold, President & CEO of Easter Seals Hawaii said.
Over the years Easter Seals has helped many local residents (children, adults and families) with disabilities live a more independent life. “On Maui we provide personal support for youth, adults and group programs for adults. We customize each program’s hours and goals to meet the needs of each individual receiving services,” Crystal Romero, Program Manager, Easter Seals Maui said. One triumphant example that showcases the dedication, hard work and impact of this organization’s mission — tells the story of a Maui man who learned how to independently ride the bus.

The grazing event, showcasing local Maui ingredients, will highlight the talents of: Celebrity Chef Lee Anne Wong from Koko Head Cafe, Chef Eric Morrissette of Fleetwoods on Front Street and Chef Bella Toland from Travaasa Hana.
