As America’s fascination with food grows, the issues that surround our food system have taken on tremendous national importance. Recognizing our unique role in celebrating, nurturing, and honoring America’s diverse culinary heritage through programs that educate and inspire, the James Beard Foundation has inaugurated two important events: the annual James Beard Foundation Food Conference and the James Beard Foundation Leadership Awards.

With hunger at its root, appetite has been the driving force for human culture, especially when it comes to food. Appetite fuels ambition. Appetite drives our economy. Appetite is life. But our appetites have their consequences, especially when unchecked. Hunger and obesity, consumption and conservation, ambition and suppression, control and freedom—these are a few of the paradoxes of appetite that present challenges to our modern society. This year we will use appetite as a tool to help us understand how to arrive at a more healthful, sustainable future.

Won’t you join us? We know you'll leave satisfied.
