Permalink James Beard Foundation Leadership Awards Recognize Sustainable Food Visionaries

Recognizing visionaries in the business, government and education sectors responsible for creating a healthier, safer, and more sustainable food world, the James Beard Foundation has named the recipients of the inaugural James Beard Foundation Leadership Awards. The honorees — who range from urban agriculture heroes to tireless healthy school food pioneers — are Will Allen, Fedele Bauccio, Debra Eschmeyer, Sheri Flies, Jan Kees Vis, Fred Kirschenmann, First Lady Michelle Obama, Janet Poppendieck, Alice Waters, and Craig Watson. The Leadership Awards represent a new focal point for the Foundation as the culinary arts organization enters its 25th anniversary year. "Our new Leadership Awards shine the spotlight on game-changing pioneers who have inspired positive action to improve our country’s food system," said Susan Ungaro, President of the James Beard Foundation.
