Native Tongue is dedicated to empowering citizens 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.

Food education is disguised as 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
