The James Beard Foundation: Where Pleasure Meets Purpose

Read more

Can you have ‘good food for good?’ James Beard Foundation CEO Clare Reichenbach joins Billy Shore to discuss the role the culinary community plays in driving positive change through food. “Whether it’s celebrity or agency, [chefs] are trusted in a way that is unparalleled, and they literally can help shape public taste and opinion,” says Reichenbach. “I am so impressed by this community. There are so many calls on their time, but the generosity of spirit I see day in and day out is phenomenal,” she continues.

Reichenbach discusses in more depth some of the important issues facing the restaurant industry and the James Beard Foundation, including the #MeToo movement and gender equality. “There’s been a day of reckoning and I don’t see us going back from that… Culturally there’s been a good shift, but actually seeing that shift translate into systemic, structural change remains to be seen,” she cautions.   

Listen in as two leaders of influential food organizations talk about using the powerful currency of food culture to drive social change.

A culture of philanthropy is often the desired state for any fundraising organization or nonprofit. But the roadmap to actually getting there is a little ambiguous. 

The different professionals within the organization need to find ways to work together as a team to build that culture. But, as Tamar says, this process takes time & it doesn't happen overnight

Tamar Copeland joins host Penny Cowden in this episode to talk about the various roadblocks to building a culture of philanthropy, how to encourage CEOs to participate in philanthropy, and how a culture of philanthropy promotes talent retention.
