Sunday Supper at Union Market—created and hosted by EDENS, one of the nation’s leading retail real estate companies, and in support of the James Beard Foundation—continues the tradition of gathering around the table to celebrate the people and passion behind great food.

Sunday Supper at Union Market raises funds for the James Beard Foundation’s Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program (WEL). With support from partners such as EDENS and Women Chefs and Restaurateurs (WCR), this fellowship program is hosted in residence at Babson College, the nation’s leading school for entrepreneurship, and will allow women owners to gain the tools and financial training needed to expand their business empires, ultimately putting more women leaders at the table to guide the industry’s growth, policies, and practices.
