The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts

Julia Child made cooking fun. She inspired millions to take to the kitchen and appreciate the pleasures of making and eating good food. In 1995, Julia had the foresight to establish The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts to further her far-reaching impact as a teacher and mentor after her death. Since 2004, the Foundation, through grants made to other non-profit organizations and by presenting the Julia Child Award, continues Julia’s legacy, educating and encouraging others to live well through the joys of cooking, eating and drinking well.

Meet Ashia Aubourg, Food Tank’s Food Justice Fellow. Aubourg’s fellowship is supported by a grant made to Food Tank in honor of Food Tank president and co-founder Danielle Nierenberg receiving the 2020 Julia Child Award. In addition to researching and writing articles for Food Tank: The Food Think Tank, Aubourg is conducting weekly Instagram Live interviews and launched Food Tank’s presence on TikTok. Here, she shares what drives her work and what she’s learning while at Food Tank:

“Growing up experiencing food insecurity, among other systemic oppressions, propelled me to support other people and communities experiencing the same injustices. I realized how much media and storytelling plays an essential role in the food justice movement throughout my experiences working for urban farms, public schools and community organizations. This fellowship is teaching me how to hone my journalism, digital media and communications skills. My focus for this fellowship is amplifying BIPOC narratives. I have found healing and joy from holding conversations on Instagram Live and interviewing food justice community members for articles. I envision the future of media being inclusive, equitable and rooted in love, and hope during my time with Food Tank to contribute to those values.
