On April 13, 2023, The Lighthouse in New York City played host to an unforgettable event celebrating the important work of the Jacques Pépin Foundation (JPF). The fresh new venue, aglow in the Manhattan sunset, accommodated a larger audience of long-time supporters and new JPF Members gathered together in support of our mission to improve lives through culinary training.

The event was a resounding success, raising more than $740,000. Guests were treated to an incredible experience, as the JPF brought out the culinary stars to showcase their talents. Special guest Brandon Chrostowski of EDWINS gave a powerful keynote speech on the transformative possibilities of mentorship and culinary education for disadvantaged adults.

We are grateful to all those who attended and amazed by their support and generosity. To see how the funds are allocated, check out the programs section of our website. Save the date of April 4, 2024!
