Cocina De PUEBLO

PUEBLO is now offering Healthy Cooking Classes for ARISE High School students!!!

We are very pleased to announce the exciting new project--COCINA de PUEBLO!!! Program Director, Rosa Arciniega and her partner, Oscar, are working with youth to train and empower them in the kitchen and beyond.


PUEBLO staff has already begun the 12-week training program for ARISE students which teaches them food preparation skills, principles and practices of eating healthy, and basic business management skills such as financial planning and marketing.

Students will put these skills into practice by learning to prepare a set of affordable, desirable recipes using fresh ingredients.Those who successfully complete the program will have opportunities to assist the program directors in developing and managing a catering business, which will sell affordable, healthy meals to ARISE students/staff/families, provide food for meetings/events, and sell to the public in other Fruitvale venues.

Through learning about sourcing ingredients, shopping at markets, working at gardens, and developing recipes, students will gain an understanding of how food systems work, and gain the knowledge and inspiration to make food choices that promote personal and community health.
