Sunday Supper at Union Market is a primary benefit event for the James Beard Foundation’s Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program (WEL). Through the generous support of Sunday Supper, the WEL fellowship program launched in residence at Babson College, the nation’s leading school for entrepreneurship, and now gives exceptional women in the culinary industry the opportunity to develop their business and management skills resulting in the growth of women entrepreneurs into positions of leadership both within their industry and in their communities.

Now in its 8th year, Sunday Supper at Union Market—hosted by EDENS, one of the nation’s leading retail real estate companies—honors the tradition of gathering around the table to celebrate the people and passion behind great food.
