Back to The Family Reunion

About / Our Mission

The mission of The Family Reunion is to nurture, develop and celebrate racial and ethnic diversity within the next generation of hospitality professionals. Speakers, chefs and sommeliers will delve into the Black cooking traditions that have shaped cuisine in America, share past lessons, and focus on building a better and more inclusive future.

Two percent of ticket sales from The Family Reunion will be donated to benefit Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign to support its efforts to help end childhood hunger.

“Discussion and action are both moral imperatives, and I'm thankful that I can provide a catalyst for conversation for such an amazingly talented and insightful group of people.”

Sheila Johnson
