Fatima Davenport wants to introduce healthier food options to her community.

A Toronto-born cook who serves Filipino-inspired barbeque and dreams of starting a catering business. A Covington woman whose baked goods are inspired by her Appalachian heritage. A woman whose gastric bypass surgery propelled her into healthier eating. Now she wants to own a restaurant serving healthy options. A chemical engineer from Venezuela with a passion for cooking breakfast. These are some of the home cooks graduating from the FreshLo Chef Fellowship Program.

The Center for Great Neighborhoods program is funded through the Kresge Foundation and assists home cooks with the dream of creating a business or those already in the food industry who want to take it to the next level.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the fellowship are FreshLo Chef Manager Teri Heist; and graduates Fatima Davenport and Monica McCormick.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
