Cory Bahr is passionate about helping others.

The Nola Tree Project: helping to grow a fruitful collaboration.

Cory Bahr and the Nola Tree Project launched #greauxhealthykids, an organization dedicated to starting community orchards and planting fruit trees in blighted neighborhoods and schools in Louisiana, where they hope to provide access to fresh fruit and eco-literacy to thousands of area children. 

The road to the Derby runs through Cafe Reconcile.

Chef Bahr partners with Cafe Reconcile in New Orleans.

This spring, Chef Cory became a regular guest chef and mentor at
New Orleans restaurant, Cafe Reconcile. This restaurant provides
opportunities for at-risk teens and young adults, teaching them skills
they need to succeed in jobs in the restaurant business. 

To kick off this project, he worked along side the students at the restaurant, 
preparing 1,100 servings of Chef Bahr's signature  duck wraps, which
were served at the "Taste of the Derby" in Louisville, Kentucky,
home of the most exciting two minutes in sports, The Kentucky Derby.
