The Awards

The Awards

The Good Food Foundation invites you to join us each January for a three day-long celebration of the exceptional food and drink crafters who are pushing the envelope in both craftsmanship and sustainability. For a long time, certifications for responsible food production and awards for superior taste have remained distinct—one honors social and environmental and social 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. The Good Food Awards honor the people who make food that is delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions.
