Tuesday-Monday DECEMBER 1 - 7, 2020

A movement created to encourage the public to support their local women-led food businesses.

Georgia Women’s Food Fest, in partnership with Taste of Atlanta & the James Beard Foundation is led by the Atlanta JBF “Let’s Talk” Forum which many Atlanta and Georgia women restaurateurs and food entrepreneurs belong to. The intent of Let’s Talk is city-level forums to support each other, take collective action, and survive this economic and health crisis together. Started in Chicago, Let’s Talk is spearheaded by Rohini Dey, Ph.D. (Vermilion), who runs it across ten cities within the JBF Women’s Leadership Programs. Let’s Talk has connected 200 women restaurateurs nationwide.

“This year has been so incredibly difficult for our hospitality families,” said chef/owner Anne Quatrano. “Even when the industry is on its knees, it’s encouraging to see groups of people & our fellow local businesses continually coming together for the survival of everyone around them. I’m so grateful for this network of inspiring women as we all continue to take action for our communities throughout this new normal.” Anne Quatrano - Chef/Owner, Bacchanalia
"It's been incredibly gratifying to come together and back each other at the most brutal time our industry has ever faced,” says Rohini Dey, Ph.D., “We plan to continue our collective action. I hope Georgia will rally and help its intrepid women business owners survive." Rohini Dey Ph.D. - Owner/Founder, Vermilion, Chicago
“Our hope is that this week-long promotion will prop up our female entrepreneurs who have become the heart of our communities,” said Dale DeSena, Taste of Atlanta founder. “Taste of Atlanta is proud to partner with such a strong coalition of women during a time when the restaurant industry needs our support more than ever, and we’re excited to be a part of Atlanta’s greater contribution towards mending today’s economic crisis.” Dale DeSena - Founder/CEO, Taste of Atlanta


Here's how it works:

Female-owned food & beverage businesses will be offering a special menu, dine-in specials, products for sale and/or delivery & pick-up options that showcase their businesses in honor of the program from Tuesday, December 1, through Monday, December 7.
