La Cocina De Los Niños
Providing healthy meals to children helps them learn, grow and play.
Our kitchen introduces new ways of choosing food and reduces the risk of diabetes and other diet related health issues common in poverty-stricken communities.
La Cocina De Los Niños is based in Leonardo Gastelum, a colonia just a few miles outside of Cabo San Lucas. The program provides healthy meals to well over 245 kids each day during the school year.
La Cocina arose from a concern voiced by Sarahuaro women around lack of healthy food for their families. Beyond making critical meals for students, La Cocina provides nutrition and cooking training that the mothers can bring to their families and homes.
The cost of feeding ONE child is $15 US per month, $150 US per school year.
