Our Jungle Kitchen
Welcome to our Jungle Kitchen! At Punta Mona, our chefs prepare three community meals per day, using ingredients harvested fresh from our farm. Our cuisine is vegetarian, organic, seasonal, and infused with an abundance of superfoods, medicinal herbs, and of course Punta Mona love.
We encourage creativity and as little waste as possible in our kitchen, which means our chefs are always transforming and repurposing leftovers from the morning. Anything that doesn’t get eaten by our humans feeds our lovely hungry chickens or gets composted to feed our plants.
Meal Times / Breakfast: 7AM / Lunch: 12PM / Dinner: 6PM
