These programs include the annual JBF Food Conference, JBF Leadership Awards , and new Chefs Boot Camp for Policy & Change.
When the promotion concludes on October 31, 2013, the city with the most Instagram photo uploads will be declared the winner and receive a donation from JBF in the amount of $10,000 or 10% of the proceeds raised nationally, whichever is higher, will be awarded to the city's selected charity.
