The Kidney Kafe' Garden 

The Kidney Kafe’ Garden was established in the fall of 2021 behind Access Housing SE Veterans Service Center. Chef Benne’ started in September of that same year providing 40 healthy meals once a week to the Veterans that lived there.  The Veterans began to anticipate that day and even took to calling that day “Chef Day”. As of January 2023 Chef Benne’ is now cooking 630 healthy meals a week. He has noticed if he can control, maintain, and cultivate the garden, he will be able to feed the veterans right from their own backyard. As he started making fresh seasonings and herbs, he realized how his high blood pressure was under control because he wasn’t eating a lot of salt. Chef Benne started creating fresh seasonings right from this garden which gave him his motto “From the ground to the Gut” the title of his upcoming book.
