Jonathan Saturay grew up in a Filipino household that put food and community together hand in hand. Combining his passions for music, education, and good food, Jonathan serves as Staff Coordinator for the Seattle School’s All-City Marching Band in addition to being the lead instructor for the Pure Food Kids Workshop. Jonathan finds educating kids about nutrition and instilling a sense of community through cooking an extremely rewarding experience, and the kids just love him!
A South Seattle native, Jonathan grew up in Columbia City, attended high school in Renton, and went on to study Music Education at Arizona State University. When Jonathan isn’t too busy fighting the good food fight or teaching music, he enjoys reveling in everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer: hiking local trails with his best friends, listening to Seattle Hip Hop, and waiting impatiently for Rainier Cherry season. Jonathan is now leading a bi-coastal life as he heads up Pure Food Kids Foundation operations in New York City.
