Seed Restaurant is food on a mission.
Seed is out to make healthy, farm-to-table dining accessible to everyone. The unique menu is filled with creative variations of regional dishes based around locally produced, chemical-free ingredients. We support island farmers and cultivate an urban garden on the premises for just-picked freshness. You’ll taste and feel the difference.
Seed is also out to do business the right way. Business can be an expression of justice and joy. The restaurant is staffed by survivors of homelessness, human trafficking, and domestic abuse, along with other at-risk individuals who face unique challenges. Seed provides flexible jobs, training, and a supportive community enriched by a team of volunteers. Justice and hard work have never felt so fun.
Food that is good for you, good for the community, and very good to eat.
Enjoy the food. Join the mission.
SEED IS CLOSED FOR REPAIRS
We’ve had a wonderful first year at Seed! Our mission to provide healthy, locally-sourced food while employing people coming out of huge challenges has been a success.
Unfortunately, we are in need of some major repairs and will be closing our doors for a time. Please check back here or visit our Facebook page to follow our progress and find out when we will re-open (we anticipate May or June 2015).
We will continue to provide catering services. Head over to our Catering page to place an order.
Mahalo to all our loyal customers, we look forward to serving you in the near future.

Our leased building and existing equipment are in desperate need of repairs. Help us get back up and running — in return, we're offering a range of perks, along with our deepest gratitude. Every donation made this month will be matched dollar for dollar by a grant, up to $50,000!
FOOD on a MISSION
Seed tries to give food a little meaning.
Our menu is filled with regional dishes made more meaningful through health, justice, and artistry. We choose ingredients that are honest and fresh. We gather from local sources whenever possible and grow fresh kitchen herbs and vegetables on the premises in our urban garden. Some of our recipes might vary slightly day-to-day depending on what’s available locally. This is as it should be. We prepare dishes creatively, to nourish both body and spirit. We serve with joy because we’re grateful.

Our meals are always healthy.
We won’t serve it if it isn’t true to the body. Our plates are proportioned and balanced for optimum health.
Our business is an expression of justice.
