James Beard Foundation
The James Beard Foundation is at the center of America’s culinary community, dedicated to exploring the way food enriches our lives. Through our partnership, we bring the best of the best in culinary talent to present on the James Beard Cooking Stage – all presenters are James Beard Award winners, nominees or chefs who have cooked at the Beard House. Our goal is to celebrate America’s culinary talent and honor James Beard’s legacy through scholarship and education. We also thank our incredible chefs for making this program possible.
SOME (So Others Might Eat) is an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation’s capital. We meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing, and health care. We help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment and counseling, to the poor, the elderly and individuals with mental illness. Each day, SOME is restoring hope and dignity one person at a time.
