Recap of the big event

January 04, 2018

Happy New Year to all!


Healthcare and food security experts agree that populations in need should have both access to fresh food and healthy cooking education. Thanks to your combined generosity, we were able to put together a spectacular healthy cooking event in December that provided both.


Over 50 people attended over the course of the morning. Two cooking classes were conducted in both English and Spanish, and each family received a crockpot, cooking tools and bag of fresh produce to take home! While parents learned some new recipes, children played together with holiday games and decorations. 


Remember: This would not have been possible without you.


That's the power of coming together to make an impact - and we thank you for helping us make this project a reality!


Please check back on to see new projects that you can help support throughout the new year. You'll get project updates and milestone notifications for every cause you support. 


Thanks again for supporting Healthy Hispanic Cooking with Salud Popular and have a safe, healthy and happy 2018.

We made it!

Thank you /  gracias a todos!

We have made it to our goal of raising $2,000 for our healthy Hispanic cooking project that will bring fresh produce and cooking classes to our local community.

We’re very excited to launch these new initiatives aimed at addressing preventable health issues and using food as medicine.

We look forward to sharing an update on how the funds were used soon, including more recipes featured in the class!

Thank you again,

All of us at Salud Popular


One week to go!!

Gracias a todos!

We are one week away from the end of our campaign and are very close to reaching our goal – keep spreading the word and giving what you can, I know we can do it!

This week I had the pleasure of speaking on La Mega radio about health concerns in our local Hispanic community, and you can watch the interview, in Spanish, on La Mega’s Facebook page:

We at Salud Popular thank you again for keeping the momentum going for our project as we enter the final stretch!

Come together. Make an impact.
