For a long time, certifications for responsible food production and awards for superior taste have remained distinct—one honors social and environmental responsibility, while the other celebrates flavor. The Good Food Awards recognize that truly good food—the kind that brings people together and builds strong, healthy communities—contains all of these ingredients. We take a comprehensive view, honoring people who make food that is delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay, this year’s Awards Weekend were held at the Herbst Pavilion in the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. A big congratulations to our 2016 Good Food Award Finalists and Winners! It was an unforgettable weekend celebrating truly remarkable people.
