The Kitchenistas

Women advocating for healthy food traditions to change communities and transform lives.

In 2013, twelve Latina mothers attended the inaugural healthy cooking program at Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center in National City (San Diego, CA). By the end of 2020, there are more than 275 Kitchenistas and a 1-year plus waiting list. The Kitchenistas are community builders, teaching healthy food traditions and bringing families together one delicious meal at a time.

The Kitchenistas is a local public television program presented by KPBS.
