Sunday Supper at Union Market, a collaboration of the James Beard Foundation and EDENS, one of the nation’s leading retail real estate companies, continues the tradition of gathering around the table to celebrate the people and passion behind great food. As with any true family meal, diners share a communal table with the chefs, artisans, community advocates and thought leaders who are shaping our food-ways. This year’s event will feature FLAVORS OF THE AMERICAS along with some of the nations’ leading chefs.
Sunday Supper is a primary fundraiser to support the James Beard Foundation’s Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (WEL) program. The program, initiated by EDENS’ CEO Jodie W. McLean, is designed to identify, cultivate and advance the next generation of women business leaders. As part of the James Beard Foundation’s efforts to target gender imbalance in the restaurant industry, the program seeks to address the drastically low percentage of women in executive and ownership positions in the food industry.
2017 marks the inaugural class of the WEL program. The unique fellowship program is presented by Babson College, the nation’s leading school for entrepreneurship, and will host up to 20 female chefs/owners at a week-long leadership and entrepreneurship training program targeted to women interested in growing their businesses, securing capital, creating jobs and building community.
By joining us on Sunday, June 4th, your support will help ensure the success of this groundbreaking program.
Proceeds benefit the Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program: $150 of the ticket price is tax deductible; $100 is tax deductible for the Member price.
