Here's a nice dispatch from a JBF Scholarship recipient: Matthew F. Johnson, currently enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, is a finalist in PepsiCo's "Game Day Grub Match" competition in Arizona. The assignment? Develop and execute the ultimate Super Bowl recipe using the company's line of products. Johnson and his teammate will travel to Phoenix to present their entry to a panel of judges at an NFL event; the winning team will attend the Super Bowl and receive a $5,000 scholarship.

Johnson received the James Beard Foundation's Elkes Family Scholarship in 2013 and the Andrew Zimmern Second Chances Scholarship, sponsored by Eyebobs, in 2014.
