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.
The 2014 Leadership Award recipients will be honored on October 27 at a dinner ceremony co-hosted by Good Housekeeping at the Hearst Tower. The awards presentation will be part of the James Beard Foundation’s fifth annual Food Conference, Health/Food: Is Better Food the Prescription for a Healthier America, taking place on October 27 and 28 in New York City.
