About Us

Kale University

was a dream of 4 "plant-based foodie eating" friends living in San Diego, California. This site has undergone many changes and has always come back to being a resource -based free site. Our core creed is to be K.A.L.E. (K.ind, A.live, L.earning and E.xploring)

If even one person gets inspired or finds some useful information they need to help improve their health, we have accomplished our goal. We also invite you to reach out in a kind way and contribute if you are drawn. If your proposal meets our mission and vision we would love to hear from you.

Ken Dorr and Mario Marchiaro are two of the main content providers and can be contacted for personal health consultations. 

They have decades of experience in the health and wellness arena and have facilitated Retreats, Public Speaking Forums, Meetup Potlucks, Documentary Screening nights, Entertainment Evenings, Fundraisers, Animal Awareness Rallies and Healing Protocols for individuals in need of some guidance.
