Friends of James Beard Benefits®

Help support the next generation of great American chefs by hosting a Friends of James Beard Benefit at your restaurant!

By holding a Friends of James Beard Benefit, chefs have the opportunity to stage a high-profile event that supports James Beard Foundation scholarships and other culinary programs.

 

Benefits can be presented in a variety of formats:

 

  • Hosts can offer a multi-course tasting menu, a family-style Sunday Supper, or a walk-around party
  • Benefits may be hosted by a single chef or a group of chefs from a particular city or region
  • A restaurant can host its own stand-alone benefit, or a benefit can take place within a larger festival

 

Benefit hosts are invited to name their own scholarship and to determine who is eligible to apply.

 

If you're interested in hosting a benefit or would like to learn more, please contact Diane Harris Brown at dhbrown@jamesbeard.org or 212.627.1128.
