About the James Beard Foundation

The James Beard Foundation (JBF) is about good food. From our annual James Beard Awards that celebrate excellence in the culinary industry to our amazing good food events at the James Beard House and across the country as part of the JBF Taste America Tour that visits ten great food cities each year. 


But everything JBF does is also in pursuit of a better food world. The Foundation is about good food, but with a purpose. 


JBF believes that chefs are powerful change agents.Chefs do more than make delicious food. They are more than today’s celebrities. The role of the Foundation is to support our vision of a better food world and that’s accomplishedthrough purpose-driven work with the culinary community and their supporters on topics including:inclusion and women’s leadership in the culinary industry; education and action around reducing wasted food; the promotion of more sustainable seafood through the Smart Catch program; and our providing critical scholarship funding for the future leaders of our industry.

Critical to the success of the culinary community is a national food-loving audience who follows and supports the industry and the James Beard Foundation.
