  • Pre-Sales Start For Hawaiian Electric Fundraiser Cookbook - Cookbook Full Of So ʻono Recipes

Hawaiian Electric fundraiser cookbook full of so ʻono recipes
Proceeds from cookbook sales to benefit Aloha United Way
Pre-sales of Hawaiian Electric’s latest cookbook Hū ka ʻono: Favorite Island Recipes from Hawaiian Electric’s ʻOhana and Friends has begun at The all new, spiral-bound collection features 160 recipes from employees, retirees, family, friends, local chefs, and nonprofit partners, as well as energy tips for the home cook. Priced at $14, all proceeds will benefit Aloha United Way, the nonprofit organization celebrating 100 years of working to create lasting, sustainable change in our communities.

“We proudly support Aloha United Way and their contributions to our communities,” said Shelee Kimura, Hawaiian Electric senior vice president of customer service and executive sponsor of the internal campaign. “We are grateful to all of our
ʻohana and friends who provided their favorite recipes to make this cookbook a success. With the holidays approaching, this is a good time to buy one for yourself and give another as a gift, knowing that your purchases are supporting those in need.”

Hū ka ʻono,
meaning “so delicious,” reflects how each contributor felt about their recipe submission. The 180-page cookbook include appetizers; soups, salads and dressings; side and main dishes; desserts; jams and jellies; “no cooking” required; and recipes for those on KETO, gluten-free or Paleo diets. From Crispy Salt and Pepper Shrimp, Honey Baked Shoyu Chicken and Li Hing Mui Spareribs to Poi Bread, Leopard Mochi, and Haupia Pumpkin Pie, the recipes highlight the diversity of local flavors and cultures.

About Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO)
For more than 100 years, Hawaiian Electric Company has provided the energy that has fueled the islands' development from a Hawaiian kingdom to a modern state. Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. (HECO), and its subsidiaries, Maui Electric Company, Ltd. (MECO), and Hawaii Electric Light Company, Inc. (HELCO), serves 95% of the state's 1.2 million residents on the islands of O`ahu, Maui, Hawai`i Island, Lana`i and Moloka`i.

The energy we use is an essential but limited resource necessary to maintaining our quality of life. In a changing world, Hawaiian Electric has evolved to offer more than electricity.

Today, the company also provides energy solutions to help customers save money and use energy more efficiently. Hawaiian Electric also continues to pursue the use of more clean, renewable energy alternatives to help ensure a sustainable future for our islands.


Hawaiian Electric Company is dedicated to our community in which we live, work and serve. Rooted in Hawaii and one of the largest companies in the State, Hawaiian Electric takes the concept of malama pono -- to care for and serve -- to heart. The company and our employees have a long tradition of contributing with dollars, time and talent. Corporate citizenship is crucial to Hawaiian Electric's overall business plan because strong communities are essential to the success of the company, our employees and our customers.

Company and employee volunteerism is encouraged and every month, employees walk, run or provide manpower to dozens of non-profits throughout the State. Hawaiian Electric's corporate giving philosophy gives priority to projects that help families, promote education and protect the environment.

The company also sponsors robotics programs and events that promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) education, as well as the SunPower for Schools program bringing solar electric power to select schools, the Solar Sprint event where students design, build and race cars using solar power, and the Home Energy Challenge, a school-based competition encouraging elementary school students and their families to reduce energy use at home, among other programs.

For nearly a decade, Hawaiian Electric volunteers have provided manpower, bucket trucks and ladders to install Christmas lights at the Kaimuki Community Park and playground before the annual Kaimuki Christmas Parade in December.
