Founder & Director

José Enrique Navarro

Co-founder and Art Director

After writing food-related academic articles and working in community-based film in Latin America, Chío realized that her heart was in the kitchen of her home, wherever that might be. With this in mind, she created Migrant Kitchens. While participating in and cooking for a social-impact project, she realized that she wanted to develop the project as a pedagogical tool. This project synthesizes her interests about food, cooking, and social justice. 

José Enrique is a professor of literature and visual culture who has a passion for comics. In this project he is in charge of all visuals other than videos, social media, writing, and of the legal and financial paperwork.
