Les Dames d’Escoffier / Atlanta Chapter
Grant and Volunteer Application
2016

Les Dames d’Escoffier International (LDEI) is a worldwide society of women dedicated to creating a culture in the community that fosters excellence and promotes the achievement of women in culinary professions through educational and charitable activities. 

The LDEI Atlanta chapter was founded in 1996, and since that time has grown to become a highly-regarded asset to members, a frontrunner in chapter accomplishment within the organization, and a philanthropic leader in our community.  Our membership of over 100 women includes professional chefs, restaurateurs, caterers, farmers, food retailers, event planners, cookbook authors, food journalists and historians, winemakers and wine industry professionals, food publicists, culinary educators and hospitality executives.

Each year, Les Dames d’Escoffier (LDEI) Atlanta provides thousands of dollars of funding and numerous volunteer hours to local organizations. We specifically focus on helping organizations working in the areas of: green tables/farming, global culinary initiatives, the culinary community and programs that teach cooking, nutrition or support anti-hunger work.

Grant applications for both funding and volunteer hours are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. In 2015, applications will be analyzed two times – April 1 (for those applications received on or before April 1) and October 1 (for those applications received between April 2 and September 30) with answers regarding grants or volunteer time given by May 1 or November 1. Requests not given grants or volunteer time on May 1 will automatically be placed into consideration for the November 1 review period. LDEI Atlanta will give only one financial grant per organization per calendar year and only to registered 501c3 non-profit organizations.
