Worried by the health and social problems of childhood obesity, Chef Garcia created Big Chef, Little Chef to help kids and their families take control of their eating habits and ultimately, their lives.

Through hands-on cooking classes and workshops, Chef Lorena motivates kids and their parents with her charismatic personality, enthusiasm and passion for healthy food that tastes great! At the same time, the program teaches parents the benefits and importance of adding more nutritious foods to their daily menu. Chef Lorena creates a fun and inspiring environment for families to learn how healthy changes to their day-to-day diets can have a positive impact on the way they look and the way they feel - and how easy and rewarding those changes can be.

Chef Garcia's Big Chef, Little Chef program, is one example of her commitment to health and well-being of America's families.

"I was traveling a lot and everywhere I went, I saw an obesity problem, especially in Hispanic families. So I asked myself, ‘What can I do to make a difference in kids' lives?"
