Open For Good
Community-focused and independent restaurants are at the heart of every city, town, and village across America, and the world. For over 30 years, the James Beard Foundation has celebrated the best of those restaurants, showcased culinary excellence, and pushed chefs and restaurateurs to use their voices for positive change.
Open for Good is the James Beard Foundation’s campaign to help independent restaurants survive this crisis, rebuild better, and thrive for the long term.
Open for Good programs provide critical resources to help independent restaurants build the capacity to come back stronger, more equitable, more sustainable, and more resilient.
