In 2011, Chef Hanis Cavin and Sara Stroud opened Carnitas’ Snack Shack, their first joint venture, in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego. The “SnackShack,” as it’s affectionately called, serves slow food-inspired, pork-centric American cuisine, snacks and locally sourced craft beers. Over the years Hanis and Sara (and Carnitas!) have earned the respect of their colleagues through hard work, creativity, and dedication to their community. Each year, they participate in many charity and outreach programs, educational field trips to local farms like Olivewood Gardens, school programs and food events such as Chef Celebration, the Emilio Nares Foundation, the Front Burner Fund for restaurant employees, San Diego Center for Children, Mama’s Kitchen, San Diego Food Bank and California Restaurant Association Mentoring Program. In 2013, they helped raise $100,000 for local San Diego charities!
