Our friends Lidia Bastianich and Michael Symon are not going to let us miss our October Membership Drive goal of 300 new members. With just a few days left before the drive ends and a very long way to go, Lidia and Michael are hoping to inspire you to join us.

If we hit our goal of 300 new members, Lidia and Michael have each pledged to match member donations up to $5,000!

With the matching donations already pledged by JPF Members Andy from California and Don & Charlotte from New York, that makes our total potential member match $15,000!

But, we can only collect if we hit 300 new members. So, here are a few reasons to join the JPF Membership Family this October

  • Every JPF Membership helps support culinary training programs across the country.
  • To date, the JPF has provided over $1M in grant funding for community-based culinary training programs.
  • This year, the JPF expanded the Grants Program to launch a multi-year Partnership Circle grant opportunity to help increase impact with specific grantees.
  • Learn to cook before the holidays! JPF Members receive full access to hundreds of cooking videos from all your favorite chefs, including Jacques.
  • New recipes coming in Volume 5 of Cook with Jacques Pépin & Friends, including new holiday recipes from top chefs releasing this December.
  • Exclusive access to our NEW Signature Apron with the purchase of a new membership or gift membership.

If you’ve been considering becoming a member of the Jacques Pépin Foundation, now is the time to join. Please join as a Member or give the gift of Membership today.
