    Hi Chef Jeff,

    I think your show is very inspiring. I’m disappointed in Adam, he has the most potential and hopefully he’ll use this opportunity to the fullest. I hope you come back for a second season and give us an update on the contestants of the 1st season.

    Just want to say I love the Chef Jeff Project it was very inspirational to me…I love the Art of Cooking….love to see people actually to take the time out for people who make mistakes and want to make a change in their lives….to the 6 young people on the show take care of yourselves and never give up on your dreams

    Your show is such a statement of personal triumph and the ultimate gift of helping another “find their light”. My husband and I have been touched week after week watching these motivated young people find their power and accomplish what appears to be their greatest success. You have found the chord of what is missing from the fabric of families today: patience, determination, support, encouragement, guidance, honesty, motivation and love. All of the individual stories were so heart-warming. We were particularly taken with Adam. On the last show, it said that he had yet to receive his GED. We couldn’t help but wonder if someone close to him felt him drifting away and was threatened by his newly found strength. If Adam needs financial help or counseling to get to the next step, please let us know. You should also have a web-site where folks like me can donate to help further these kids and others who really want to change their lives.
    Bless you-
    Nancy

    I just wanted to say that I really loved the show and what Chef Jeff did for those young people. Although I have to say that I was disappointed that Adam hadn’t gotten his GED, hadn’t taken advantage of comming to Houston or using his scholarship to the Art Institute. I wonder if he really understands what an opportunity he was given.

    Chef Jeff really impressed me with his understanding, compassion, patience, love, support, guidance and over all caring for those young people. Kudos to Chef Jeff and his crew. It was a truely inspiring show and I look foward to seeing season 2 of the Chef Jeff Project.

    Dear Chef,

    What you do is heart warming and selfless. I am a single mother of 2 boys. As mentioned by so many others, I’ve tried to give my boys all that I didn’t have. My oldest son just turned 17 and has gotten into the wrong crowd. He needs help ASAP!! If not helped and shown a better road soon, I’m afraid he will pretty much destroy his future. I’ve tried to work with the school and the police, but no one will assist me. Please consider him for your next show.. He just needs a positive male influence and a challenge that will keep him out of trouble. I’d be more than happy to give you much more detail of our situation’ just contact me at the email address I gave:) Thanks for your time!
