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 was 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. Now it’s time to begin planning another go-round.
The entry period for the 2017 Good Food Awards closed on August 1, 2016, with over 2,000 tasty entries this year. Our annual blind tasting will be held on September 18, 2016. Our fine panels of judges will determine what’s most delicious in each food category. Stay tuned for more information about the 2017 Finalists and Winners!
