If you have a young person in your family interested in cooking, you might want to check out a new program at Seaport Inn in Fairhaven. It is called "Cooking for a Cause." Area young people (ages six and up) with an idea for a food creation can apply. If their application is accepted, they'll be invited to the Seaport Inn to work on the recipe with a professional chef.  The "creation" will be featured for a week on the menu at the Seaport Inn Grill.

Proceeds from the sale of the dish, after food expenses, will go to Gnome Surf of Fall River, a program that teaches surfing and other skills to adults and children with physical and intellectual challenges.

Middle-school student Adam Whynot took part in this program earlier this year (above). He and his dad, David, spoke with Jim Phillips on Townsquare Sunday this week, along with Tara O'Connell of the Seaport Inn.

Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program heard every Sunday morning at 6 a.m. on 1420 WBSM. The program highlights individuals and organizations working to improve the quality of life on the SouthCoast. Segments can also be heard on WBSM.com, the WBSM app, and on YouTube at WBSM TV.
