The first weekend in March - Kalen McAllister, Founder of Laughing Bear Bakery - found herself being followed by a film crew from New York City! Kalen, a Buddhist priest, was chosen as a subject by a documentary team because of her compassion for and tireless efforts to help ex-offenders. She is one of only five women internationally they are concentrating on. They also interviewed George Lombardi (Board member and former Director of the Missouri Department of Corrections); Mike Gann (Board President); and, Pete Wallace (Board member and Kitchen Supervisor) for this documentary which will be shown in NYC, San Francisco and in St. Louis in September. You can follow the progress of this film, see photos and read updates on their Facebook Page: On The Buddha's Path.
