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 have the opportunity to contribute to the James Beard National Scholars program, and will be acknowledged in our print and digital media, as well as the JBF Awards program.

 

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.
