“For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.”

Everywhere in God’s word, you can find references to health and wellness, both spiritually and physically. Started in 2016 as a social media page, Camp Cuisine aims to educate everyone about the wholesome, tasty benefits of healthy cooking and living according to God’s plan. Some of our projects include the Natures Nest Health Food Store, “Home Cooking with Chef Miguel Larcher” (an online vegan cooking show), and other community-based outreaches.
