Since 2010 this fellowship is given annually by the LDEI San Francisco Chapter to a promising Bay Area woman food journalist (not a Les Dames member) and has no application process or strings attached. The monetary award is presented as an acknowledgement for good works, and as encouragement to keep writing and to stay active in food journalism.
