Cindy Fuller Quinonez

Good Food Activist, Executive Chef, and Culinary Educator in San Diego, CA

I’m Chef Cindy, a former healthcare Food Services Manager, CDM, and Executive Chef who loves sharing my passion for good food, while ensuring its accessibility to those who need it most.

My good food activism includes regularly volunteering for I Love to Glean and other charitable food organizations in San Diego, especially those serving the South Bay: Barrio Logan and National City to the border. I've been especially active connecting San Diego caught seafood – the bounty of catch from San Diego fishermen – with those too often short of the nutrition it can provide, spurring and supporting programs like Fish to Families.

Not yet fully retired, weekday mornings you can often find me in North Park's MAKE Projects kitchen, teaching culinary interns (mostly refugee women making a new life in San Diego). I also continue to operate Fit Catering, which provides private chef and catering services, addressing client's special dietary needs.
