Viviana Acosta-Padial is a Puerto Rico-native and an active participant in Culinary Corps. In February, she is leading a group of volunteers to Puerto Rico to help strengthen the food culture of the island Commonwealth. They hope to preserve traditional cooking techniques and promote sustainable agriculture as Puerto Rico's population depends mostly on food imports.
Culinary Corps is a non-profit group that leads culinary professionals into under-served communities to help support their cultural heritage through food. Until this Puerto Rico trip, their focus has primarily been in New Orleans.
