  • Hawaiian Electric Employees Publish Stay Home, Cook Rice Fundraiser Cookbook - A Pandemic Limited Edition


Hawaiian Electric employees publish Stay Home, Cook Rice fundraiser cookbookProceeds to benefit United Way chapters across three counties


Continuing a long-time tradition of giving back to the community, Hawaiian Electric employees are raising funds for United Way chapters on Oʻahu, Maui County, and Hawaiʻi Island through Stay Home, Cook Rice – A Pandemic Limited Edition cookbook. The all-new edition is priced at $14 and includes more than 160 recipes contributed by employees and retirees, their families and friends. From slow-cooked meals to Instant Pot® favorites, these kitchen-tested recipes can be enjoyed any day of the week. The cookbook also includes helpful energy-saving tips for the home and a handy kitchen measurement conversion table.

“Although we need to maintain social distance during the pandemic, food is a great way to connect and our employees wanted to share recipes that have been helping them get through these unprecendented times,” said Bob Krekel, Hawaiian Electric business process and continuous improvement manager, and employee fundraising committee chair. “We hope to raise funds through cookbook sales that will help support individuals and families in our community who are struggling to make ends meet every day.”

The ubiquitous rice can be found in such dishes as Baked Sushi, Mom’s Chinese Rice Cooker Chicken, and Pumpkin Risotto, while an Instant Pot makes quick work of popular dishes such as kalua chicken, pot roast, and even spaghetti. For those with special dietary needs, find gluten- free, vegetarian, paleo- and keto-friendly recipes.

All proceeds from the cookbook sales will benefit Aloha United Way, Maui United Way and Hawaiʻi Island United Way, which together are helping unite people, organizations and resources to transform lives and create stronger, healthier, and more resilient communities.

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.

COMMUNITY COMMITMENT

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.
