James Beard Award winner Andrew Zimmern

You likely already know Andrew Zimmern from his adventurous, no-bite-left-uneaten Travel Channel series Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and Bizarre Foods America. He's also a two-time JBF Award winner, nabbing our Outstanding Personality/Host award in 2010 and again in 2013. 

Beyond his work and achievements in entertainment, Zimmern is also a valued contributor to the JBF Scholarship Program. In 2014, through a collaboration with eyebobs eyewear, Andrew launched his "Second Chances Scholarship," which is awarded to a promising, aspiring student who has faced and conquered extreme challenges.

Last week eyebobs and Zimmern launched another charitable partnership: the all new Sun of Zimm frame. This stylish eyewear is available in two options: as a bifocal sunreader and as non-magnified polarized sunglasses that offer reduced glare and 100 percent UV protection. Best of all, a portion of the proceeds from the Sun of Zimm will benefit the James Beard Foundation's 2015 Second Chances Scholarship.

Learn more about the Sun of Zimm and purchase the eyewear here. Applications for the 2015 Andrew Zimmern Second Chances Scholarship and all other 2015 James Beard Foundation scholarships will be available starting April 1.
