We are excited to announce our Charity Spotlight for our November 16th Breakfast In The Evening, the Sisterly Love Collective. The collective was created by Ellen Yin, Sofia De Leon, Jill Weber, Chef Jen Carroll, and Avery Jannelli. A few months into a pandemic that was lasting so much longer than anyone had hoped or expected, Ellen Yin emailed several women who work in food and beverage to see if we wanted to check in with each other over Zoom. The answer was a resounding yes, and so they met on Zoom shortly after — many meeting for the first time. What began as a way to share updates and offer support to each other has evolved into a movement to lift one another up and personifies the theme of Breakfast in the Evening, The Power of Resilience.
At Breakfast In The Evening, please stop by the special popups you will see at the event. The three popups will feature chefs from the Sisterly Love Collective.
Diana Widjojo of Rice & Sambal
Thanh Nguyen of Gabriella’s Vietnam

They will showcase their take on “breakfast for dinner” during cocktail hour and dessert.
Sisterly Love Collective supports that mission by creating a network of diverse women restaurateurs and food entrepreneurs through mentorship, educational programming, advocating for women entrepreneurs and developing access to leadership networks. It is an alliance of women food entrepreneurs and restaurateurs across the Philadelphia region banding together to promote sustainable success in hospitality. Sisterly Love Collective is a program of Les Dames d’Escoffier Philadelphia, a 501(c)3 organization, whose mission is to educate the public about food and beverage, the food services industry and to support and advocate for women around issues that affect women in food services.
