JBF Leadership Awards
With the JBF Leadership Awards, the James Beard Foundation is taking a bold step towards the important and complex realms of sustainability, food access, and public health. We hope to shed light on these timely issues by celebrating the visionaries responsible for creating a healthier, safer, and more sustainable food world. Our honorees are chosen by a growing cohort of past Leadership Award recipients.
The Leadership Awards recognize specific outstanding initiatives as well as bodies of work and lifetime achievement. Excellence of work, innovation in approach, and scale of impact within a community or the nation were among the criteria used to select this year’s winners.
Our 2013 honorees be honored at a dinner ceremony that will take place during the James Beard Foundation Food Conference on October 21 in New York City. For more information or to purchase tickets, please contact Bowen & Company at 914.231.6180 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
