Who are we?
The Filipino Food Movement was founded to create broad awareness, appreciation, and enhanced investment in Filipino Culinary Arts. In just a few short years, we have gathered national attention in the press, millions of worldwide impressions on social media, and hundreds of passionate and talented individuals who believe Filipino Cuisine deserves its rightful place in the global menu.
We believe that the story of our culture, and indeed ourselves, is programmed into the DNA of each ingredient, no matter where it is grown; each dish, no matter how it has evolved; and each cook, no matter where he or she may come from. Through an inclusive & collaborative spirit, we aim to combat the challenges and negative stigmas facing our cuisine. We aim to shed light on the true value of Filipino Cuisine. We aim to build a better stage upon which to celebrate and elevate the Filipino Food experience. We aim to gather those that are working tirelessly to do the same. Together, we can influence the rising tide that will lift all vessels, with the hopes of leaving a trail of crumbs in our wake that will inspire, gather, and feed generations to come.
It is in our cuisine that we find our commonalities, rather than our differences. We identify as Filipino not only by birth but also by choice, and it is with our choice that we pledge ourselves to the promotion of our heritage through our culinary arts.
WORK WITH US
Why isn't Filipino Food more popular? Filipino's are the 2nd largest Asian sub group in the US, according to the US Census department. Its time for all purveyors, chefs, manufacturers, fans, and lola's to come together to celebrate the great flavors of Filipino cuisine.
Some of us have a dream that Filipino Cuisine will be as popular as it deserves. We are searching for those with a similar dream and passion to help us take the movement forward.
