The Kidney Kafe With Chef Benne

Meeting the Chef:

Chet “C. Alan” Bennett, also known as Chef Benne', has been on the radio for over ten years with his show, "The C Alan Morning Show". The innovative, motivating, and forward-thinking show aired on two Radio One Stations, 95.9 FM and WOL 104.1 am.
In 2018, C. Alan was diagnosed with kidney failure. He was on dialysis for a year while trying to pull the strength and will together to continue as the CEO and Founder of his school and tend to its staff, students, and many listeners. Finding it extremely difficult to go on, Mr. Bennett prayed for answers and wondered what was next.
His prayers were answered when a former student and mentee volunteered to be his kidney donor. After receiving a successful kidney transplant, C. Alan has dedicated his life to helping others with kidney disease. Thus, the C. Alan Foundation was established.
The Foundation’s goal is to raise money to assist the kidney disease population by offering counseling, nutrition, toiletries, education, housing, transportation and support. The activities of the Foundation will include, but will not be limited to, fundraising events, pampering days, giveaways, and working with like-minded organizations.
Our main goal is to identify, educate, and assist those affected by kidney disease. His newest venture is to transform the lives of the Diabetic and  Kidney Community! The Kidney Kafe' with Chef Benne', will teach the Diabetic and Kidney Communities other options to stay healthy through recipes, meals, and daily lifestyle maintenance.
This new show will also give local chefs and cooks an opportunity to highlight their brand and present more choices for better living. The Kidney Kafe Motto is, "Pamper yourself, it's your duty, because you deserve it".

Discover the simple secrets to becoming a casual, confident cook, even if you feel clueless in the kitchen. Here you will find some of Chef Benne' wonderful and healthy meal recipes. He'll make sure you get everything right with easy-to-follow recipes. Whether you're whipping up a quick weeknight meal or inviting friends over for a laid-back weekend feast, you'll find all the foolproof recipes make every meal awesome.
