Alex Zubia


Alex Zubia, also known as “Xef,” is a chef and food justice advocate born and raised in Fresno, CA (Yokutch Land). He attended The California Culinary Academy in San Francisco (Ramaytush Ohlone land) in 2007 and discovered his passion for cooking through his love of eating. After witnessing members of his community suffering from diet-related issues while working as a Patient Liaison at Community Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Room from 2008-2015, Xef opened his own food truck. His food truck focused on providing healthier, farm-to-fork versions of familiar foods.
