2014 Good Food Awards
If you are a producer of a specialty product with a focus on sustainability, Slow Food Kansas City would like to encourage you to enter your product in the Good Food Awards. The Good Food Awards celebrate the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsibly produced. Awards are granted to outstanding American food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients. An annual Awards Ceremony and Marketplace is hosted at the iconic Ferry Building in San Francisco to honor the Good Food Award recipients who push their industries towards craftsmanship and sustainability while enhancing our agricultural landscape and building strong communities.
In its fourth year, Good Food Awards will be given to winners in ten categories: beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, pickles, preserves, spirits and our newest category, oil. Awards will be given to producers and their food communities from each of five regions of the US. The Good Food Awards seal, found on winning products, assures consumers they have found something exceptionally delicious that also supports sustainability and social good. Check out the eligibility requirements on the Good Food Awards website. To apply, go to http://www.goodfoodawards.org/the-awards/entry-form/. You must apply by July 31st so do it today!
Slow Food USA shares the values of Good Food Awards, so we’re partnering at the local level to help the producers in our communities gain the recognition they deserve. Please mention that you heard about it from Slow Food Kansas City!
