Making a Difference

Schoen Family

Schoen Family Donation

The Jacques Pépin Foundation would like to express our deepest gratitude to Laurie Schoen, Jean-Michel Bergounoux and their children for their generous contribution to the foundation. We shared a beautiful meal, with amazing wines, forming new friendships and strategies for future collaborations.


Partnership with Oceania Cruises

We are so pleased to announce our newly formed partnership with Oceania Cruises! Oceania will be the sponsor/host of the VIP cocktail reception at our inaugural benefit dinner on January 11, 2018, and has committed to being a long-term partner to the Jacques Pépin Foundation.


Food & Wine Magazine Article

Food & Wine Magazine recently published a lovely article about the JPF in their on-line magazine. We are so grateful for their support!


American Masters: The Art of the Craft

In May of 2017, PBS released an American Masters documentary on Jacques Pépin. The film, produced by Peter Stein does an excellent job of capturing the passion, beauty, and complexity of Jacques’ life and career. Sprinkled with classic footage and interviews from culinary luminaries, the film will transport you from the scarcity of WWII, to a time when all the mushrooms in American grocery stores were canned, to celebrity chefs.

The Jacques Pépin Foundation Working with the Community

The Community Kitchen at the Rhode Island Food Bank is a great example of the organizations that the Jacques Pépin Foundation supports. Low-income and jobless adults participate in a 14 week, full time course that teaches the culinary, job and life skills required to enter the workforce as a food service professional.
