Native Tongue is dedicated to empowering communities through food.

Chicago’s underserved communities are trapped in a culture of unhealthy eating because of food insecurity and lack of food education.

At Native Tongue, we use print media and hip-hop as an influence to make food education exciting and interesting for Chicago’s underserved communities.

We prioritize food education through a magazine that features gourmet recipes with affordable and available ingredients, cooking techniques, and food stories that makes food education fun and mindful of underserved communities in Chicago. Each issue features:

Tailored recipes crafted for budget, convenience and ingredient availability

Community organizations and heroes creating positive change through food

Kitchen tutorials, pantry guides, and culinary how-to's

Global recipes and profiles of regional and international culture
