If you started the New Year with a diet resolution, it may have already fallen by the wayside. Not so for three seniors at Kamehameha Schools. They’re changing the way they eat with a uniquely Hawaiian twist: a 90-day poi diet. And as HPR’s Molly Solomon reports, they’re documenting their journey in a new film that hopes to raise awareness of Hawaii’s starchy staple.

The filmmakers are trying to raise $77,000 on Kickstarter. For more information or to make a contribution, click here.
