Cowboy Community Kitchen

Cowboy Community Kitchen opens people's eyes both to the growing phenomena of community kitchens in seniors' residences, homeless shelters etc. and to the impacts of brain injury and the potential for recovery when people are given the right tools.

Led by the unique Cowboy Chef, Mark Connelly, a group of brain injury survivors get together in a community kitchen to cook, laugh, share and learn. Mark is completely deaf as a result of meningitis, Robin and Kerry are legally blind. All struggle with various outcomes of their brain injury but, as the film reveals, a community kitchen can provide the perfect space to build renewed trust in each other, in their own abilities and in life itself.

Recovery doesn't need big dollars – it can be as simple as getting together to cook and share a meal.
