Kenneth James may be a personal chef to Damian Lillard, but he’s a role model to us at Bradley Angle. When Kenneth isn’t preparing top notch meals for NBA stars he is donating his time at Bonnie Tinker House, our emergency shelter for domestic violence survivors.
He teaches beginner cooking classes for the kids at shelter and occasionally prepares the house a delicious meal. What a way to get their minds off of everything else!
Most recently, Chef James prepared an amazing meal for the Fourth of July. This has kick-started our newest program to get involved at our shelter: The Adopt-A-Holiday Program. Each holiday now has the opportunity to be adopted by a family, company or community member.
Chef James volunteerism is not just special for the families at our shelter, it’s also special for him. “Bradley Angle provided me an opportunity to give back through my passion for cooking. I can remember being at home as a child and wondering what my mother would come home and make for dinner, and often times if she was going to make anything at all. As I got older my mother trusted me with preparing the meals while she was away. So it’s my pleasure teach the kids some basic recipes that they can carry into the future. Being able to feed my siblings and myself literally saved my life.”
Bradley Angle is happy to have Chef James as a part of our team. Thank you for your commitment to Bradley Angle!
