We are Merelis and Ysanet! We are both Afro-indigenous Dominican women who are guided by African and Indigenous roots and ancestors.
We love food, specifically Dominican food, and wholeheartedly believe that food is medicine!
We are educators, organizers, vegan and vegetarian chefs, nutrition brujas, and farmers in training.
Our hope and desire with Woke Foods is to use it as a platform to remind our people of the knowledge they already have within them, talk about our collective ancestral connection to food, and share vegan and vegetarian Dominican food practices with our community.
