On Beyond Organic -- Cooking Up New Lives

A county jail might be one of the last places you’d expect to see a sense of community coming together over a freshly prepared, healthy meal.

Chef Larry Bain sees it happening all the time. Bain’s cooking outreach program brings gourmet chefs to the San Francisco County Jail where they teach nutrition and cooking skills to female inmates, culminating in a sit-down dinner.

Beyond the hard skills, Bain sees these women coming away with something less tangible: control over one small aspect of their lives.

Join host Jerry Kay, as we hear all about Bain’s efforts to empower through cooking. We’ll also learn how one community kitchen is turning small time home chefs into thriving food business entrepreneurs.

The Beyond Organic one-hour radio show airs every Wednesday at 10 a.m. (PST), reaching thousands of listeners across North America via traditional radio stations, satellite radio, webcasting and podcasting.
