I'm waiting at the Kahului Airport for my connecting flight and I'm hungry. What are my choices? Burger King, CPK, Pinkberry (yogurt), and the sports bar.
I know, for myself, I could have planned ahead and packed a meal to have control over my later food craving. What about the hundreds or thousands of other consumers that pass through this airport. The mainland travelers don't really have the luxury of packing a meal that would survive a 5 hr flight.
Part of the challenge we face in shifting our consumption to our local producers, we need to ensure the selections our businesses offer reflect this movement. If a fountain machine only has spouts for Coke, Sprite and Dr Pepper, how is a consumer suppose to make a sound choice? It's not only hearts and minds, but equipment and menus.
