The James Beard Foundation Leadership Awards
About the James Beard Foundation Leadership Awards
The 2011 JBF Leadership Awards recognize visionaries in the business, government, and education sectors working toward creating a healthier, safer, and more sustainable food world. This year’s inaugural honorees—who range from urban agriculture heroes to tireless healthy school food pioneers to corporate business leaders—were chosen by an advisory board of a dozen experts committed to advancing food quality and healthful, sustainable practices. The Leadership Awards recognize specific outstanding initiatives as well as bodies of work and lifetime achievement. Winners will be honored at a dinner ceremony that will take place during the James Beard Foundation Food Conference on October 12 in New York City. For more information visit jbfleadershipawards.org.
