Mission Statement

Sanzuma is dedicated to increasing the availability of freshly grown foods through gardening and urban farming, improving health and reconnecting people with their environment. We believe a person's health and diet should not be a reflection of their economic status. Through the lens of comprehensive, healthy food systems, we support low-income communities from Mexico & Central America to Marin County, California. Sanzuma works directly with school districts to improve their meal program and overall wellness.


We formed Sanzuma to educate people around the world how to use solar ovens. After many trips to Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala we realized there is a lot of work to do right here in Marin County.

We shifted gears and started supporting Food Access to low income families through programs run at San Rafael City Schools.

We are teaching the students how to grow healthy food and what to do with it once they have grown it. We often use our solar ovens to prepare the food that we have grown.
