What is Social Gastronomy

Social Gastronomy is a flag raised by Gastromotiva and has the support of several institutions and chefs around the world. It is how we use the food as an agent of transformation and change in people's lives, either directly or through public policies.

Food should not only taste good but
also do good for society

Food as an agent of transformation

Food has a great power to transform lives and it is with this resource that Gastromotiva works. We believe more and more people can transform their lives through gastronomy.

Education is key for change

We develop and offer vocational trainings for young people of low income and socially vulnerable; support programs for micro-entrepreneurs and qualification for multipliers.

Learning how to cook is not enough

We wish to qualify citizens who are more conscious and further prepared for the job market. Contributing to their personal and professional growth as well as the communities where they live.

We are not alone

We are a large network of organizations, gastronomic businesses, chefs and companies creating a movement to transform. This is the foundation of Social Gastronomy.

International Expansion


Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the organization, Gastromotiva arrives in Mexico taking know how and experience of one decade dedicated to change people´s lives through gastronomy.
