Anna will be the Master of Ceremonies for the James Beard Leadership Awards Gala Dinner, prepared by JBF Award Winners Anne Quatrano of Atlanta’s Bacchanalia and Michel Nischan of Wholesome Wave. This year's recipients of the award will be presented with their Leadership Award. This year’s inaugural honorees—who range from urban agriculture heroes to tireless healthy school food pioneers to corporate business leaders—were chosen by an advisory board of a dozen experts committed to advancing food quality and healthful, sustainable practices. The Leadership Awards recognize specific outstanding initiatives as well as bodies of work and lifetime achievement. Excellence of work, innovation in approach, and scale of impact within a community or the nation were among the criteria used to select this year’s winners.

to free citizens to create living democracies, turning our planet toward life.”
